The Waste Minimisation Fund (WMF) helps fund waste minimisation projects. The purpose of the fund is to increase resource efficiency, increase reuse, recovery and recycling, and decrease waste to landfill.
The Minister for the Environment has set criteria for the Waste Minimisation Fund. Only projects which promote or achieve waste minimisation, including the reduction of waste and the reuse, recycling and recovery of waste and diverted material will be eligible.
