EPA Waste Reduction Fund was established to assist industry to implement waste avoidance and efficiency initiatives in their businesses to reduce the waste they generate and send to landfill.  The consultation period for the new $14 million Victorian Government fund targeted at waste minimisation in the commercial, industrial, construction and demolition industries is open with feedback closing at the end of August 2010.

The program was announced as part of the Victorian Government’s landfill levy reinvestments on 24 March 2010.

Minister Jennings launched Waste Reduction Fund on 21 July 2010 and announced a consultation phase with six broad topics looking at the financial impact of the landfill levy, interest from industry in waste avoidance, existing initiatives, level and type of support available to industry, models of funding and communicating to industry.

The Fund will open in October.
