Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund

The Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund aims to provide funding for infrastructure targeting priority materials, such as paper and cardboard, plastic, glass and hazardous solvent waste.

The fund will assist businesses to improve the quality of materials recovered and increase the capacity and capability of Victoria’s resource recovery sector.

Expressions of interest for the fund are now closed, with outcomes to be announced in late 2020.
