SA Government Trade Waste Initiative

The Trade Waste Initiative is a two-year program delivered by the Office of Green Industries SA. The aim is to help businesses make improvements to the way trade waste is managed (focusing on quality and quantity), reduce operating costs and increase productivity by improving the way materials, energy and water are used.

The Initiative has two components:

Resource Productivity Assessments - Round Two now open

These are tailored assessments to identify opportunities for improving the way trade waste, energy, materials and water are managed, and will recommend areas for improvement to enhance productivity and performance. South Australian businesses meeting trade waste volume and load thresholds are eligible to apply. Applications will also be considered from food and beverage businesses licensed under South Australia's Environment Protection Act 1993. Successful applicants will receive grant funding to cover up to 50% of assessment costs.

Food & Beverage Implementation Grants - now open

These grants offer SA Water trade waste food and beverage customers with an opportunity to implement trade waste reduction initiatives at a reduced cost. Applicants must trigger, or be close to triggering trade waste volume and load thresholds and must have completed an approved resource productivity assessment or on-site technology trials to determine a trade waste solution that is well suited to the business activity and site. Grant funding to cover up to 50% of trade waste improvement activities and equipment is available for trade waste food and beverage customers currently connected to, or planning to connect to the SA Water trade waste (sewer) network within 24 months of application.
