Community Waste Diversion Fund

Does your community have an idea to reduce, reuse or recycle more of its waste? If so, apply now for $10,000 in Community Waste Diversion Funding from MMSB.

The Community Waste Diversion Fund provides financial support to communities across Newfoundland and Labrador that are finding exciting new ways to help divert waste from our landfills.

Who can apply?

Municipalities and Local Service Districts may apply for a maximum $10,000 non-repayable contribution for initiatives that foster solid waste diversion in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Deadline for proposals is 12:00 P.M., May 30, 2016.


Community Waste Diversion Fund submission is by proposal.

  • Potential impact on waste diversion (reduce, reuse, or recycle) – demonstrates greatest waste diversion potential (relative to the size of the community).
  •  Uniqueness – demonstrates innovation. Communities are encouraged to explore unique initiatives that divert waste streams from the landfill.
  • Sustainability – demonstrates value to the community and potential to become a continued service or program (i.e. longer than one year).

We look forward to working with communities across the province and providing financial support as these exciting new projects are implemented to help divert waste from our landfills.
