Are you thinking of kick-starting a recycling program but don’t have the budget? Recycling Grants help organizations across multiple industries offset the costs of recycling. Keep reading to learn more about some grants available across Canada.
What is a Recycling Grant?
A recycling grant is funding (typically from a non-profit, large corporation, or government organization) that helps offset the costs of your recycling program. There is an array of recycling grants available based on your geographic location as well as what industry your organization is in. There are larger grants that are available to applicants across the entire country vs. smaller, local grants available in your city or province. Some grants fund recycling infrastructure (bins) directly, while others fund recycling education and outreach projects, composting programs, and more. Here we’ve provided a list of some of the grants that are available in Canada.
