Waste Levy Fund
Do you have an idea that could reduce or reuse waste?
We want to see a measurable decrease in the amount of waste going into our landfill. That’s why we’ve created a new Waste Levy Fund to financially support projects that avoid, reduce, recycle, recover, or reuse waste in the Stratford district.
Applications are open from 1 November 2023 to 31 January 2024
Download and complete the editable PDF application form and email your application to WasteMinimisation@stratford.govt.nz or post it to:
Stratford District Council, PO Box 320, Miranda Street, Stratford 4352
If you have any questions, please get in touch with our team at WasteMinimisation@stratford.govt.nz or call 06 765 6099.
Where’s the funding from?
The Government charges a levy on all waste disposed of through landfills across the country. Half of the money raised is distributed to territorial authorities, including the Stratford District Council. We’ve used this money to set up our Waste Levy Fund.
Reducing the amount of general waste going into our landfills is great for ratepayers and our environment!
Who can I contact if I have questions?
