$1.5M Recycling Quality Improvement Grant Opportunity

Register now for January 16, 2019 informational webinar

If you’ve wanted to improve your community’s recycling program but felt overwhelmed by the lack of time and money – you’re in luck.


Together with the national nonprofit, The Recycling Partnership, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) is offering new 2020 grant opportunities, totaling $1.5 million, to communities seeking to improve material quality in residential curbside and drop-off recycling programs.


The grant request for proposals (RFP) will be released on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020. Applications are due Friday, Feb. 28, 2020.


Any Michigan municipality, township, county or regional authority representing a group of communities, currently operating a curbside and/or drop-off recycling program, is eligible for up to $150,000 per grant application. Funding may be used for cart tagging, education and communication, social media, signage, and other tactics aimed at reducing contamination.


To inform stakeholders and answer questions about this grant opportunity, The Recycling Partnership and EGLE staff will host a webinar Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020 from 10 to 11 a.m. EST.
