DCEO’s Bureau of Energy and Recycling seeks grant applications in recycling
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 http://www.illinoisrecycles.com. The deadline is Dec. 8, 2014.
