The Australian Government, through its Recycling Modernisation Fund, provided $5.5 million, which was matched by $5.5 million from the Tasmanian Government to support the increase of recycling and remanufacturing of plastics in Tasmania.
Further matching funding, or better, is being provided by the project applicants, which is resulting in $20 million being invested into Tasmania’s plastics recycling and remanufacturing.
In 2021, Timberlink and I M Holdings (Tas) were selected from nine Tasmanian applications to the Recycling Modernisation Fund (Plastics) Round 1 Grants program.
