Apply for the Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative Funding

What is the Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative funding?

The Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative (WRRI) provides financial assistance to NWT-based municipalities, Indigenous governments, schools, organizations, businesses and individuals to complete projects supporting one or more of the following goals:

  • reduce the amount of waste generated in our communities
  • reuse materials and products, rather than discard them
  • recycle materials which are not already collected through a NWT recycling program
  • recover a useful benefit from waste

How do I apply?

Thank you to all applicants for their interest in this year’s WRRI.  Applications for 2021 funding is now closed. Please revisit this page for updates on the 2022 funding event.
