Request a Grant Writer

Rebates of up to $40,000 to Colorado nonprofit organizations, local governments, and for-profit entities for recycling-related hauling and transportation expenses. Funding is intended to assist free community or public recycling drop-off sites that must ship their recyclables considerable distances to bring them to market or to be further processed.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (department), working through its Pollution Prevention Advisory Board (board) and the Assistance Committee (committee) to the board, requests applications for a monetary rebate from the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund. The intent of this rebate program is to assist free public recycling drop-off sites by offsetting a portion of the transportation costs incurred by shipping recyclables to market or to a processing center.

GrantWatch ID#: 147014

Estimated Size of Grant:

Only rebates totaling $100 or more will be awarded. The maximum rebate a single entity can receive is limited to $40,000.

Two formulas will be used to calculate rebate awards for eligible recycling drop-off sites:
1. Sixty (60) percent of the fund will be allocated based on the tonnage recycled and the miles traveled to bring recyclables to the nearest processing facility.
2. Forty (40) percent of the rebate will be allocated based on the number of eligible recycling drop-off sites.
For further details, see pp. 2-3 at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Djc4qjvfMZDXZR_5uYj4kSNS5wEmspLN/view.

Term of Contract:

The current rebate application period (i.e. when tonnage is collected) is January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

According to the Colorado Revised Statutes, Section 25-16.5-105(1)(k), any local government, nonprofit, or for-profit entity within the State of Colorado that performs the services or recycles the materials listed below may apply for a rebate. Any entity that incurs transportation/hauling costs associated with providing one or more free public recycling drop-off sites is eligible to apply for a rebate.

A drop-off site must collect a minimum of 10 tons of qualifying recyclables during the rebate period to be eligible.

The following facilities are considered drop-off sites and would be eligible for a rebate provided that recyclables are accepted from the general public:
1. A drop-off site that is operated by any local government, nonprofit, or for-profit entity on public or private land within the State of Colorado
2. A Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) or similar processing center that processes, sorts, and/or bales less than 8,000 tons of recyclables per year
3. An end-user of recyclable material within the State of Colorado that processes less than 8,000 tons per year
4. A facility that collects and processes post-consumer glass for recycling, but processes less than 8,000 tons per year

For applicant requirements, see p. 2 and p. 6 of https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Djc4qjvfMZDXZR_5uYj4kSNS5wEmspLN/view.
