Waste & Recycling Projects

Waste to Art 2014

This exciting art competition will be held in November 2014. Watch this space for further details.

Funding Available for Community Groups

Keep NSW Beautiful and the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) are running a grants program to resource community groups who want to undertake a project to cut litter in their neighbourhood. The grants are used to refurbish or improve a place where litter is currently accumulating.

The Community Litter Grants award up to $5,000 to groups who carry out a ‘Local Litter Check’ (following a specific methodology developed by the EPA) and use this information to come up with a plan to change the character of their litter hotspot from a public garbage can to a place community members can use and enjoy.

Even if you don’t want to apply for the full grant, you can acquire some funds for your group by doing the Local Litter Check alone, as all groups who carry out the Check will receive $300 reimbursement on top of the grant.

Love Food Hate Waste

Visit Love Food Hate Waste website  

Uralla Shire Council is proud to be a partner with the state government's Love Food Hate Waste campaign.

Each NSW household throws away more than $1,000 of food per year. Across the state that totals 800,000 tonnes per year.

Sadder still, most of it could have been eaten. We often waste food because we don't know how to store it correctly.
