Resource Recovery Secondary School Grant Program


Calling all secondary schools in the shire!  

Council is excited to announce a secondary school grant program that will give successful applicants the resources to implement a waste-wise initiative at their school.  

Secondary schools in the Macedon Ranges can apply for up to $2,000 to tackle a waste problem prevalent at their school. The proposal must tackle a waste-specific problem and consider long-term solutions and sustainability. Successful applicants will be invited to an awards ceremony later in the year. 

Applications are open from 1 February to 30 April 2024.

Important details
