Reuse and recycling credits are paid to third parties that remove items from the municipal waste stream and reuse or recycle them. This is because these items would otherwise be sent for disposal at the NLWA’s expense. The value of the credit recognises the saving to the NLWA made by the reuse or recycling activity.

Organisations wishing to claim credits must first complete an application form to request registration to receive credits. Following registration, they must submit a quarterly claim for payment and provide evidence of the tonnage recycled or reused.
