Apply Today: Business Recycling Grant Opportunity


StopWaste Partnership Business Grant Opportunity

Apply by March 30, 2012



The StopWaste Partnership Business Mini-grants provide up to $5,000 to kick-start new recycling and waste prevention projects at work. Ready to get desk-side recycling bins for all staff? Or perhaps internal promotion would help push a waste prevention project up the flagpole. Apply for funding by March 30, 2012!



Popular Uses of Mini-grants Include: 

  • Purchasing recycling and food scraps bins for the workplace
  • Paying for training, education or incentives to increase employee participation in recycling and waste prevention programs 
  • Piloting reusable containers on a delivery route
  • Funding paperless office software 


Who is eligible?

This StopWaste Partnership Business Mini-grant Program is open to all StopWaste Partnership clients and other Alameda County businesses -- private firms, public agencies, and institutions that have at least two (2) cubic yards of weekly garbage collection service.



How does it work?

The proposed project must be in the area of waste prevention, reuse, recycling or market development and have an impact in Alameda County, California. Typical projects are for start-up/one-time expenses to start or expand a workplace waste reduction program.  

  • The minimum Mini-grant award is $500, and the maximum is $5,000.
  • For organizations that generate less than 10 cubic yards of garbage per week, the maximum Mini-grant award is $3,000, unless otherwise approved.
  • Applicants are encouraged to contribute at least some amount of matching funds to the project.



How do I apply?

Fill out either the Microsoft Word or PDF application and email it to partnership@stopwaste.org.

 

For more information please email us or call 510-891-6500 and ask for the StopWaste Business Partnership team. Applications are due by March 30th.
