Waste Minimisation Fund
Each year Waipa District Council has around $40,000 available to help support individuals or groups with waste minimisation projects that rethink, reduce and reuse waste. It is held annually in time with Hamilton City Council to allow for cross-boundary projects.
Previous successful applicants include beeswax wrap workshops aimed at reducing single-use plastics, and Waste Free Parenting workshops where new and expectant mums were introduced to different types of modern cloth nappies.
