Litter report card and funding announced
The Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio launched the Victoria's Litter Report Card 2016 yesterday – one of four programs in the Victorian Litter Plan. The Report Card identifies five priority litter issues that will inform future investment and propose new interventions across Victoria over the next two years.
Actions for 2016-17 will focus on coastal areas and waterways, addressing illegal dumping, and reducing plastics and microplastic litter.
Applications for Round 2 of the Victorian Litter Innovation Fund also opened yesterday. The fund provides support for the Victorian community, including government, business, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises and schools, to fund innovative approaches that prevent and reduce the impact of litter and illegal dumping. Applications close Friday 30 September 2016.
