Community Litter Grants Recipients Announced

Grant recipients from the 2014 Community Litter Grants, which was the second round of grants we have run on behalf of the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), have just been released!

The groups who were awarded the grants earn the chance to implement their projects to prevent and reduce litter in their local area. The ethos behind the grants is that locals often know best what will and won’t work in their area, and KNSWB is here to provide guidance and expertise on what works and what doesn’t.

The Community Litter Grants will be opening for the third round in 2015 – anyone who
experiences litter as a problem in their community is invited to join forces with a
community group in the area and submit an application to tackle the litter issue.
