Ap­ply for fund­ing now

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

If you’ve got a great idea to re­duce the amount of waste sent to land­fill Auck­land Coun­cil wants to hear from you.

The Waste Min­imi­sa­tion and In­no­va­tion Fund opens on April 1 for small grants of up to $5000. The fund was set up as part of coun­cil’s Waste Man­age­ment and Min­imi­sa­tion Plan, adopted in June 2012.

Solid waste man­ager Ian Stup­ple says the small grants are for or­gan­i­sa­tions with projects that can be up and run­ning soon and make a dif­fer­ence in com­mu­ni­ties. Or­gan­i­sa­tions must meet at least half the cost of the project them­selves. The fund­ing round closes on April 30 at 4pm. Go to auck land.coun­cil.govt.nz and search WMIF for in­for­ma­tion or call 301 0101.
