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 Winners!
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 receiving this grant 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 winners educational materials through Waste Management’s Recycle Often, Recycle Right campaign, as well as technical assistance in placing bins or educating recyclers.
Grant funds will be used for:
- Keep Midland Beautiful - for paper recycling in local schools
- Keep Pearland Beautiful - for school and event recycling
- Keep Alton Beautiful - for new cardboard containers at local businesses - increases recycling and decreases litter
- Keep Elkhart Beautiful - for more aluminum containers for local sports games
Grant amount: $500 – $1,500
