Waste Management Recycle Often, Recycle Right Grant
Applications are closed. Congrats to Odessa, Pharr, Lubbock and Mansfield on winning this year's grant!
Keep Texas Beautiful, in partnership with Waste Management, is excited to announce the 2020 Waste Management Recycle Often, Recycle Right Grant (RORR). Waste Management developed the Recycle Often, Recycle Right recycling education program based on national best practices to increase recycling and decrease contamination. More information can be found at RORR.com.
The RORR Grant will provide affiliate communities with $500 - $1,500 to purchase recycling bins to either start a new recycling program (community, office, or school) or add to an existing recycling program. Applicants should already have a recycling program in place or an approved plan with a local government or waste hauler to establish a program to implement this grant-funded recycling project. Grant funds may be used for:
- Purchasing recycling bins to start or increase recycling efforts within the community, at either homes, offices, or schools
- Offsetting a larger purchase of bins
- Shipping bins to the affiliate community
Grant funds were used for:
- Keep Odessa Beautiful - purchasing of recycle bins for Adopt-a-Classroom program with local public schools

- Keep Lubbock Beautiful - purchasing Simple Sort Two-Stream stations and 32-gallon durable bins
