Zero Waste Grants

Applications now closed for the 2016 Zero Waste Grant Program

Thank you for your interest in our Zero Waste Grant Program. Applications are now closed and successful applicants will be notified by July.

The Zero Waste Program provides grants of up to $3000 for projects focused on eliminating waste before it is even created and addressing the source of waterway litter in South East Queensland. Waterway litter, particularly plastic and discard fishing gear, poses a serious threat to turtles and other wildlife. Limiting the amount of disposable plastic items produced and focusing on the source of litter are vital steps in creating a positive future for our marine wildlife.
