Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Illinois nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, government agencies, libraries, schools, and school districts in eligible regions for recycling and waste reduction initiatives. Funding may be used for source reduction activities, purchasing collection containers and recycling equipment, or promoting waste reduction education. Eligible applicants will be located in Ogle County.

Eligible Expenditures:

Grant funds may be used to purchase project-related capital expenditures (e.g. equipment such as recycling collection containers, carts, processing equipment, balers, etc.), educational materials, reusable items that replace disposable ones (e.g. Ceramic plates instead of Styrofoam, etc.), and other equipment used for waste reduction or recycling.  Projects related to the issues of food waste, composting, business and multi-family recycling are encouraged.  

Recycled Content Requirement: 

Purchasing products that contain recycled materials helps to continue the recycling cycle by stimulating and creating stable recycling markets.  Products purchased with grant funds must contain recycled content whenever possible.  The use of recycled products should be addressed in the application and is one of the criteria used to evaluate grant applications.  Efforts to reduce shipping costs and to keep business local are encouraged.
