We fund pilot projects for initiatives that address specific waste stream challenges (e.g., biosolids, specific types of construction, renovation & demolition (CRD) waste, household hazardous waste, textiles, furniture, diapers, polystyrene, certain plastics, other substances). This funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes improve their waste stream management.
All Canadian municipal governments; Municipal partners applying in partnership with a municipal government.
Pilot projects assess solutions in real-life conditions. They evaluate either a small-scale version of a project or a full-scale, replicable version.
Your pilot project must address a particular type of item (e.g., biosolids, specific types of construction, renovation & demolition (CRD) waste, household hazardous waste, textiles, furniture, diapers, polystyrene, plastics, other substances), improve its waste stream diversion rate by weight or volume and offer other environmental benefits.
Your pilot should assess whether the project meets the necessary requirements (e.g., financial, technical), has a solid business case and the ability to deliver strong environmental, financial and social benefits directly to your community or through replication in other municipalities. Your project’s outcomes should help you decide whether to scale up the use of the solution you are piloting.
Examples of what you might pilot:
- A facility to treat or process a challenging waste stream
- Collection programs, waste stream sorting mechanisms, or value-added processing that diverts the waste stream from landfill
- Partnerships with the private sector to divert and/or process the waste stream
Deadline DateApplications are accepted year round, though this offer will close when all funding has been allocated.
