FUNDING FOR NOOSA REGION TO STAMP OUT COSTLY ILLEGAL DUMPING
27th January 2023
The Palaszczuk Government has announced funding to help tackle illegal dumping in the Noosa region in the latest round of its Illegal Dumping Grants.
Rob Skelton MP said Noosa council would receive $94,018 to deliver an illegal dumping officer and vehicle
“Illegal dumping isn’t just an eyesore, it’s harmful to our environment and costs council – and in turn ratepayers - a fair chunk of money to clean up,” Mr Skelton said.
“Locals have made it clear this kind of activity is unacceptable, which is why I’m proud that our government is helping provide critical funding.
“But importantly, we want to encourage Queenslanders to recycle, which is why we’re investing $1.1 billion to drive resource recovery and sustainability across the state
“That funding will help councils ramp up their recycling capabilities as well as support the industry investment and behaviour change across Queensland.”
In total, 21 local councils will share in funding totalling $2,351,733 under Round 2B of the Local Government Illegal Dumping Partnerships Program and will create more than 17 new full time jobs.
