DCEO’s Bureau of Energy and Recycling seeks grant applications in recycling

DCEO’s Bureau of Energy and Recycling is pleased to announce grant opportunities in recycling. DCEO is seeking applications from qualified entities for traditional recycling (paper fiber, plastic, metal and glass) projects. The purpose is to divert recyclable commodities from Illinois landfills by increasing the quantity of materials recycled in Illinois and increasing the self-sufficiency of the recycling industry. Projects tat demonstrate public economic benefits, such as job creation, will be given priority.

Grants are available to assist local governments, for-profit, and not-for-profit businesses or organizations and colleges and universities with their recycling efforts (K-12 schools are not eligible). Grant funds may be used to purchase project-related capital equipment such as collection, processing or handling equipment (bins, trucks, balers, etc.) and project-related expansion and modernization costs (electrical upgrades, concrete work, fencing, etc.). Project examples: Curbside recycling and/or drop-off recycling projects at municipalities, colleges, park districts, office buildings, sports facilities, etc.

Entities interested in submitting an application are encouraged to schedule an individual consultation with their regional DCEO representative listed on the attached map. RFAs can be downloaded here or at The deadline is Dec. 8, 2014.
