Recycling infrastructure grants announced

The Marshall Liberal Government will boost jobs and improve waste management in the state after approving funding for 17 recycling infrastructure projects, totalling more than $3.2 million.


This funding is part of the State Government’s $12.4 million support package for the recycling industry and local government in response to China’s National Sword Policyannounced in May 2018.

The $3,245,231 funding delivered through Green Industries SA is estimated to create and maintain 36 full time jobs, and covers a broad range of recycling, waste management and resource recovery projects including:

  • More than $600,000 for infrastructure dealing directly with recovering and recycling plastic waste
  • $424,750 for improved Material Recovery Facilities in Mt Gambier
  • $357,000 for end of life vehicle recycling
  • $250,000 for infrastructure to recycle post consumer paper into the Australian market

“The Marshall Liberal Government is supporting South Australia’s recycling industry and supporting local job creation,” said Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs.

“This investment in the remanufacturing, re-use, and recovery sector helps maintain our world leading diversion results, where 83.4 per cent of all our waste is diverted from landfill.

“China’s National Sword policy was a catalyst to increase the quality of our recycled materials and develop local markets as a priority. This funding supports a range of projects in both the private sector and local government, across metropolitan and regional South Australia.

“The State Government funding of more than $3.2 million has been matched by the applicants, unlocking more than $7.9 million of investment for 17 projects that support an estimated 36 full time jobs”

The next round of grant funding to support and develop recycling infrastructure grants is now available.
