Recycling Infrastructure Grant

Posted: January 21, 2021

Deadline: December 31, 2021

Grantor: Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC)

Additional Information

The Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC) will offer funding to deliver needed recycling infrastructure in the Southeast through the launch of a recycling infrastructure grant program. Investment in physical infrastructure, such as recycling carts, material recovery facility (MRF) upgrades, recycling trucks or transfer stations to unlock investments in curbside recycling infrastructure, are key to dramatically increasing material recovery - connecting material generation with hungry end markets in the southeast and helping to close the loop for packaging.

The programs, implemented over the next two years, will make measurable improvements and catalyze investments in recycling infrastructure through the following work plan:

  1. Identify Program Partners
  2. Deliver Recycling Infrastructure and Technical Assistance
  3. Share Successes

Funding is available only to local governments within the 9-state SERDC region (which includes Georgia). Local governments may include municipalities, counties, waste districts, waste and utility authorities, local government cooperatives and other local government organizations that are charged with collection of residential recyclables.
