Recycling projects on Coffs Coast attract government funding
FUNDING of $148,000 for Coffs Coast environmental projects has been announced by the NSW Government.
The Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said the lion's share of $100,000 will go to Handybin Waste Services to upgrade the glass plant so as to improve its capacity and product quality.
A further $48,000 goes to Coffs Harbour City Council for a community recycling centre.
"This is the first grant program of the NSW Environment Protection Authority's Waste Less Recycle More initiative," Mr Fraser said.
"It's a $465.7 million five-year initiative that aims to transform waste and recycling in NSW.
"It includes funding for business recycling, market development, managing problem wastes, new waste infrastructure, local councils and programs to tackle illegal dumping and litter.
"I am very pleased that the Coffs Harbour electorate will benefit from this program."
