Program description

The Waste Reduction Initiatives Program (WRIP) is in place to provide funding to community groups, non-profit societies, registered charitable organizations and school groups for projects that contribute to waste reduction or that divert materials from the landfill.

Projects must be based in the SCRD's boundaries, serve one or more communities on the Sunshine Coast and include a plan for how the applicant will measure, quantify and report out on the amount of waste the project is expected to reduce and/or divert waste from the landfill.

Project categories include:

  • Community reuse and repair
  • Composting
  • Construction & demolition waste reduction, reuse and recycling
  • Food waste reduction
  • Green waste reduction
  • Organizational recycling and waste reduction programs
