Funding Programs

MMSB offers funding opportunities that help support sustainable communities, business innovation and waste reduction research.

As a self-financed Crown Agency, MMSB derives its operating revenues from levies applied on used beverage containers and used tires, as well as from the sale of recyclable materials collected through its waste diversion programs. Some of the surpluses from these sources are invested in the Newfoundland and Labrador Waste Management Trust Fund (WMTF), which supports the implementation of the Provincial Solid Waste Management Strategy.

Since 2007, more than $12 million has been allocated to environmental projects, benefiting more than 300 municipalities, organizations, businesses and schools.
