Grants in the form of in-kind donations valued at up to $100 to City of Mesa, Arizona residents, neighborhood groups, local businesses, church groups, and others who are planning to volunteer for a beautification, cleanup, or other community service project on the upcoming national day of service. The purpose of these grants is to provide volunteers with either:
(a) Store gift cards to Home Depot or Wal-Mart for the purchase of some of the materials and supplies that are needed in order to accomplish their service project, or
(b) Two free landfill passes for the disposal of debris from their service project.
Landfill passes are available for either the Salt River Landfill or the San Tan Transfer Station. If awarded two landfill passes, applicants will be asked to specify a preference: Salt River landfill at 13602 N. Beeline Highway (Gilbert Rd. and the Beeline Highway), or San Tan Transfer Station at 4040 S. 80th St. (Warner and Sossaman). Please note that the San Tan Transfer Station will close at noon and passes will only be valid on that day - Saturday, October 25th. The Salt River landfill is open until 5:00 PM.
