Counties, municipalities, solid waste management districts, schools and nonprofit organizations in Indiana have one week left to submit an Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Community Recycling Grant application for funding. Applications will be accepted online through Sept. 29.
Eligible projects should focus on education and promotion of recycling, processing of materials, waste reduction, household hazardous waste and organics management.
Applicants must demonstrate an increase in waste diverted from landfills as a result of the project.
The Community Recycling Grant Program is funded through IDEM’s Solid Waste Management Fund. Grant funding is intended to create successful, cost-effective and sustainable programs.
