Grants and Funding

Glass Recycling

The Glass Packaging Forum works with councils, recyclers and other stakeholders to improve outcomes for glass across New Zealand. Sometimes the required solutions need new infrastructure, equipment or funding for research.

In the first ten years of operation, levies paid by GPF member companies have granted applications of more than $1.8 million, and each year we approve further funding.

Do you have a project that would see more glass recycled or reused? We’d love to help.

We’ll be in touch to discuss your application.

Public Place Recycling

The Public Place Recycling Scheme works with councils, recyclers and businesses to expand the number of public place recycling and rubbish bins around New Zealand. Sometimes the required solutions need new infrastructure, equipment or funding for research.

Since 2013, we have directly funded projects worth over $1.3 million. These projects have helped increase the availability of recycling bins and found recycling solutions such as for soft plastics. This year we are looking for additional pilot regions for our Let’s Put Litter in its Place campaign.

We can help you....
