Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund

Last updated: 11 November 2021

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 assists businesses to improve the quality of materials recovered and increase the capacity and capability of Victoria’s resource recovery sector.

Update:

This fund now comprises 3 streams:

  • Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund – Hazardous waste
  • Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund – Materials
  • Recycling Victoria – Recycling Modernisation Fund: This stream is co-funded by both the Australian Government and Victorian Government. It was added to distinguish them from the above grants that are funded by the Victorian Government.
