Aims

The Civil Construction Market Program promotes the use of waste from one civil construction project as a useful input into another. This program aims to improve resource productivity, reduce the costs of coordination and minimise the risks involved to result in less material being sent to landfill or large volumes of material being stockpiled.

To do this, the EPA is offering grants ranging from $20,000 to $75,000 to fund consultants, contractors, waste service providers and local government personnel who can divert construction and demolition (C&D) waste from landfill through reuse, recycling and industrial ecology projects in the NSW civil construction sector by May 2017.
