Recycling & Market Development Grant

Delaware, Knox, Marion, Morrow Solid Waste Management District (DKMM)

Agency: Local

GrantWatch ID #166357

Grant Description

Grants of up to $20,000 to Ohio nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, political subdivisions and businesses for recycling and other waste reduction programs in Delaware, Knox, Marion, and Morrow Counties. Funds can be used to design and establish projects that will assist with the collection and processing of recyclables or organic wastes.

Projects should support the market for the following materials: corrugated cardboard, newsprint, paper, plastic, glass, steel, aluminum, electronics, construction and demolition debris (C&DD), and organics (food, fiber-based, yard waste).

Applicants may address multiple materials. Projects that impact the largest DKMM service and market area and address the largest volume of recyclable materials generated from within the DKMM area will receive increased consideration.

Types of Projects:

1) Residential Recycling Projects

-Material Recovery Facility Project - MRFs process source-separated recyclables and/or recover recyclables directly from mixed solid waste. Funding is available to offset development and equipment costs. Regional MRFs that utilize planning and marketing cooperation between two or more entities can take advantage of economies of scale in marketing recyclables, thus allowing a more reliable income stream and access to better markets. Funding for new or expanded MRFs is available if adequate processing capability does not exist in the applicant's service area.

-Residential Recycling Collection - Funding is available for various residential recycling activities. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, curbside recycling, recycling collection drives, recycling drop-off and Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) activities. Both new and existing programs are eligible for funding. Applicants are encouraged to review the following examples and design an activity that best meets their needs.

2) Non-Residential Recycling & Waste Reduction Projects

Recycling Projects in Public and Private Commercial Facilities- funding is available to support recycling and waste reduction activities in public and private commercial facilities such as government buildings, schools, institutions, parks, offices, malls, food service vendors, retail and grocery stores, health/child care facilities, charitable organizations, churches, etc.

Recycling equipment, storage and transport containers may be leased or purchased by the grantee for the grant-sponsored facilities involved in this project. All grantee purchased recycling equipment and containers will remain the property of the grantee.

3) Market Development Projects

-Feedstock Conversion Project- Projects could include a paperboard manufacturer that purchases equipment to modify its production line to accept grant targeted material as feedstock.

-Construction and Demolition Debris Project- Projects could include the processing and recycling of buildings, other structures, and pavement materials, generated during construction or demolition.

-Organics Recycling Project- Projects could include facilities that process food waste installing "in-vessel" or similar processing systems as well as traditional yard waste processing.
