The Recycling Victoria Household Education and Behaviour Change Fund provides councils and alpine resort management boards with financial support for delivering local campaigns.

The campaigns are to:

  • introduce new glass household recycling services
  • introduce new food and garden organics household services
  • improve existing 4-stream household recycling services.

Applicants must use the campaign materials – developed by Sustainability Victoria – which help educate Victorians to better manage and reduce their household waste.

There are plans to have 4 funding rounds.
