Solid Waste Management Innovation Fund

The Multi-Materials Stewardship Board’s (MMSB) Solid Waste Management Innovation Fund provides financial support to innovators who are advancing sustainable waste management by finding creative ways to turn trash into treasure in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Provincially owned and/or operated businesses, industry associations and non-profit organizations can apply for a maximum $15,000 non-repayable contribution for the development of new or improved technologies, products, services or processes that support the management of solid waste in Newfoundland and Labrador – at any stage of the waste management hierarchy (reduce, reuse, recycle or recover).
