Following formal presentations, there will be a chance to network and talk with GISA staff and members of the Preferred Supplier List.

The Trade Waste Initiative
The Trade Waste Initiative may provide grant funding for up to 50% (to a maximum of $10,000 GST exclusive) of the cost of a resource productivity assessment undertaken by one of the consultants included on the Preferred Supplier List.
A resource productivity assessment will identify areas for improving your business’ bottom line, productivity and performance through improvements to trade waste management, as well as materials, energy and water efficiency, and waste avoidance and reduction.
If your business also meets the eligibility criteria for Food and Beverage Implementation Grants (i.e. is an SA Water trade waste food and beverage customer that meets volume and load-based thresholds for trade waste, you can apply for grant funding to cover up to 50% (to a maximum of $300,000 GST exclusive) of the cost of implementing trade waste management solutions. These grants will open later this year.
