WEEE LA Project Fund

The next round of the WEEE Local Authority Project Fund has been Launched

A total of £665,000 is now available for Local Authorities WEEE projects which has been raised from DTS membership fees combined with the WEEE compliance fee paid by producers under the WEEE regulations in 2016.

Proposals are now invited from Local Authorities and partner organisations for innovative and practical projects which will improve collections, recycling and re-use of WEEE in an effective and economic manner. Proposals are particularly encouraged where projects are capable of being sustained after initial project funding has expired and those which have a measurable outcome for example increasing the tonnage of WEEE diverted.

A maximum of £25,000 is normally available per project however projects of higher value will be considered if justified as of significant value with regards to tonnage of WEEE recycled, collected or re-used.

The deadline for applications is Friday 29th September.

For more information please see the press release and guidance document. If you require any further information please email weee@defra.gsi.gov.uk and title your email “DTS Project fund”.
