Local event organisers are encouraged to express their interest in Bega Valley Shire Council’s Waste Wise Events Grants, to help reduce the tonnes of waste added to landfill each year.
“Obviously COVID-19 has disrupted the shire’s regular lively event program in the last year and a half, but if upcoming events are able to proceed, we would like to provide support,” Council’s Waste Services Manager, Alan Gundrill said.
“So, we are giving event organisers the opportunity to apply for funding for Waste Wise events planned between December 2021 and June 2022.”
Waste Wise Events Grants aim to help event organisers reduce what goes to landfill by providing funds towards waste-reducing products or services at the event. Examples of this may include:
Mr Gundrill said to help event organisers prepare their application for a Waste Wise Event Grant, we have developed a Waste Wise Event Toolkit, which provides easy and practical solutions on how events can be more waste wise so we can have all the fun, without the mess.”
Applications will be open from 9am on Wednesday 6 October to 10am on Wednesday 3 November.
