Waste Management Recycle Often, Recycle Right Grant

Keep Texas Beautiful, in partnership with Waste Management, is proud to announce the 2018 Waste Management Recycle Often, Recycle Right (RORR) Grant. 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. Affiliates applying for the grant should already have a recycling plan in place, through either an existing recycling program or plans with a waste hauler or local government to implement a new recycling program. Along with grant money to purchase bins, KTB will also provide educational materials through Waste Management’s Recycle Often, Recycle Right campaign, as well as technical assistance in placing bins or educating recyclers.

Grant funds should be used for

  • Purchasing recycling bins to start or increase recycling efforts within the community, at either homes, offices, or schools
  • Funds can be used to help offset a larger purchase of bins
  • Funds can be used for shipping bins to the affiliate community

Grant amount: $500 – $1,500
