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?

The next opportunity to apply for WRRI funding will be in April 2020. 

Funding applications and guidelines are currently under review. Please check back for updated versions and details on how to apply in the coming months.
