Do you have a great idea that could reduce waste? The Council’s Zero Waste Grant Fund may be able to help you put it into practice.

Zero Waste Grants are available for initiatives that promote waste minimisation and help to educate communities about the importance of reducing waste. Funding is available to schools, early childhood education centres and community groups throughout the Tasman District for projects and initiatives that reduce waste to landfill. The maximum amount that can be applied for is $1000. This is a contestable fund.

The closing date for grant applications of $1000 or less is Monday 17 September 2012.

You can download an application form from www.wes.org.nz/zero-waste-grants or contact Karen Driver at Waste Education Services on Ph. 03 545 9176 ext 2 or via email at karendriver@nec.org.nz for further information about the fund or for an application form.
