The Western Australian Charitable Recyclers Dumping Reduction Program (CRDRP) supports charitable recyclers that divert used items from landfill and recover them for recycling and reuse. The program aims to reduce illegal dumping and littering, and to prevent unusable items – which ultimately end up at landfill – being left at donation sites. The program will support demonstration projects that implement and evaluate methods to reduce illegal dumping and littering.

In 2019-20, $50,000 of funding is available.

Applications close at 5pm, 18 November 2019.
