Recycling Container Grant
About the Grant
The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District offers grants to help non-profit organizations and schools in Cuyahoga County start, expand and improve recycling and composting programs by assisting with the purchase of recycling and composting containers.
Eligible organizations may apply for up to $2,500 in grant funds. Applications are due in February of 2014. This is a “reimbursement grant” meaning that schools would first pay for the approved grant purchases and then submit documentation of these purchases to the Solid Waste District for reimbursement. The Solid Waste District cannot reimburse the individual.
