Two container recycling grants for Lismore

TROPICAL Fruits Inc and Lismore City Council have been awarded a Keep Australia Beautiful Beverage Container Recycling grant.

An $8360 grant was provided to Lismore Gay and Lesbian organisation Tropical Fruits and its annual New Year's Eve Festival towards a greener, waste-wise and more sustainable future.

The community group has established You Can, a strategy to manage the waste generated by the 5000-person party.

Lismore City Council received an $8500 grant to install public place recycling bins at Lismore Shopping Square to assist in collecting recyclable packaging.

The grants, funded by Coca-Cola, were open to all communities across Australia with up to $10,000 available per applicant, for projects that could demonstrate they would result in a measurable diversion of beverage containers out of landfill.
