The Albury recycling facility

Sustainability Victoria has announced $8 million in funding is available through its Victorian Circular Economy Recycling Modernisation Fund Round Four and is encouraging councils to apply before 11 August.

The projects funded through the CERMF will improve recycling in Victoria by upgrading infrastructure, technology and processing capacity, and increasing the amount of recycled materials being made into new products. 

Sustainability Victoria’s Interim CEO, Matt Genever, said that the CERMF is accelerating Victoria’s circular economy by building the capacity and capability of the resource recovery sector to improve recycling outcomes. 

“This funding boost will build on more than $64 million in joint Australian and Victorian government funding already awarded to 20 infrastructure projects across Victoria,” Mr Genever said. 

“I encourage councils across the state to look at how they might take advantage of this funding to deliver local solutions.” 

Applications for Round Four of the Victorian Circular Economy Recycling Modernisation Fund close Friday 11 August 2023.
