Another opportunity is now available for Kentuckians to make a positive difference through the Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Collection Grant Program.
2013-2014 recycling and household hazardous waste grant applications are now being accepted by the Kentucky Division of Waste Management’s Recycling and Local Assistance Branch. Local governments, solid waste management districts, public schools, universities and colleges are eligible to apply. Priority is given to applicants for regional projects.
Desirable grant activities include projects that focus on developing an integrated recycling infrastructure, managing household hazardous waste and offering public education programs relating to recycling and household hazardous waste management. See how Kentucky communities have benefited from past grants.
Completed applications must be postmarked no later than Thursday, March 28, 2013, or received at the Recycling and Local Assistance Branch no later than 4 p.m. EST Monday, April 1, 2013. The original of the entire application and any supporting documentation must be submitted in order for an application to be complete. Each grant requires a 25 percent local match.
Grant funding comes from the Kentucky Pride Fund and is underwritten by a $1.75 per ton fee on municipal solid waste disposed of in Kentucky’s contained landfills.
