Grants to California nonprofit agencies, public agencies, schools, and individuals in eligible regions for programs that promote waste prevention and recycling. Large and small grants are available. Funding is intended for programs in the areas of education, job training, waste prevention, and recycling in Alameda County and the city of San Ramon.

The objectives of the Education Advisory Board are to promote waste prevention and recycling, job training, and education through:

  • Waste prevention and recycling programs that serve schools (recycling supplies, program materials and other education activities such as field trips);
  • Projects in: waste prevention, source reduction, reuse, recycling, composting and procurement of recycled content products;
  • The Board is especially interested in supporting school projects in food waste prevention, food donation, and organics separation pursuant to Senate Bill 1383;
  • The board will prioritize projects that provide a learning opportunity for students and/or the community and projects that result in high quality recovered materials and products;
  • Priority will be given to programs that change the culture/behavior of waste prevention and recycling in schools;
  • Community education through waste prevention, source-separation and recycling education programs;
  • Job training and internships in the field of waste prevention and recycling. This grant year, we will not be considering grants for job training programs in general retail or construction.
