Events & Announcements

Funding is available through the GNWT's Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative for municipalities, Indigenous governments, schools, organizations, businesses and individuals to reduce, reuse or recycle waste
in your community.

The Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative (WRRI) provides up to $50,000 in 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

Deadline to apply is April 9, 2018.
