Charitable Recyclers Subsidy Program 2023–24

Charitable Recyclers Subsidy Program 2023–24

The Charitable Recyclers Subsidy program enables eligible South Australian charitable recyclers to partially off-set some of the landfill disposal costs associated with residual waste stemming from goods donated for the purpose of reuse, resell or recycle.

Who can apply?

To be eligible, an applicant must be a charitable recycling organisation that received donations from the community for the primary purpose of re-using or selling the goods for reuse. Please refer to the program guidelines for further information.

What will we fund?

The total subsidy available per charitable recycler is calculated as 75% of the levy liability per tonne of waste disposed to a waste depot.

The following formula will be used to calculate eligible subsidy:

75% x Levy Rate x Disposed Tonnage = Total Subsidy

Please refer to the program guidelines for details on the supporting information required for applications.
