Charitable Recyclers Subsidy Program 2020-21

Charitable Recyclers Subsidy Program 2020-21

The Charitable Recyclers Subsidy Program provides financial relief to charitable recyclers aligned to the solid waste levy. This subsidy program replaces the partial levy waiver which was in place during 2019-20 and 2020-21. 

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 50% of the levy liability per tonne of waste disposed to a waste depot. The following formula will be used to calculate eligible subsidy:

50% x Levy Rate x Disposed Tonnage = Total Subsidy

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