Aims

The Resource Recovery Facility Expansion and Enhancement Program aims to increase recycling of household, industry and business waste.

This program is part of the NSW Environment Protection Authority's (EPA) Waste Less, Recycle More initiative and is being delivered through a partnership between the EPA and the NSW Environmental Trust. This program supports projects that stimulate and accelerate investment in new equipment and upgrades that will boost recycling processing capacity in NSW.

This program funds only existing licensed facilities that are located in NSW. New facilities are funded by the Major Resource Recovery Infrastructure Program.
