The City of Hobart aims to achieve zero waste to landfill by 2030. That means working together to recycle as much as we can and reduce waste.

Grant programs 

The City of Hobart offers annual grants of up to $5 000 for businesses and community groups in Hobart for projects to increase resource recovery and to reduce the volume and type of waste otherwise directed to landfill. Find out more at the Waste reduction grants program page.

Through the Dr Edward Hall Environment Grant program, the City also provides $30 000 each year to assist schools, community groups and businesses. Individual grants of up to $5 000 are available for projects relating to energy efficiency, air and water quality, food gardens, waste reduction, climate change, sustainable transport and local biodiversity. Learn more at the Dr Edward Hall Environment Grants page.
