Waste Management Trust FundWaste Management Trust Fund
Newfoundland and Labrador Waste Management Trust Fund plays an integral role in supporting waste management projects that guide the province toward modern waste management, and support the overall implementation of the provincial Waste Management Strategy.
Since 1999, $10 million in funding has been allocated to the Trust Fund for environmental projects. This funding has benefited more than 300 community and environmental groups, municipalities, and schools, and has funded dump site closures, waste management studies, school recycling initiatives, and environmental education and recycling. Funding for the Trust Fund is made available as a result of surplus revenue generated by the Beverage Container Recycling Program.
Funding supports regional waste management and diversion in order to address long-standing environmental problems. The Trust Fund provides financial assistance for the closure of waste disposal sites, regional waste management studies and waste management coordinators, education initiatives, and research on potential waste diversion and recycling initiatives.
