Up to $3.5 million worth of grants are available for projects supporting Western Australia's e-waste management network

Grants are available for projects which either:

  • support facilities to collect, manage and store e-waste, before reuse or onward reprocessing; or
  • focus on reprocessing and recycling, including assisting businesses to purchase and install relevant equipment.

Grants are open to businesses, Local Governments, regional councils, and registered charities, with applications, which will close on Friday, 29 March and are to be made via: dwer-env.smartygrants.com.au

WA's e-waste ban will be introduced later this year, and includes most electronic consumer goods, such as large household appliances, mobile phones, televisions, and computers.
