Grants

A thriving materials management system in Michigan is created through a network of successful local programs, effective education, innovative market development, public/private partnerships, and more. EGLE strives to make grant funding available annually to support projects that will contribute to Michigan's environment through enhanced materials management.

Education Resources

Education is an essential ingredient for a sustainable and thriving recycling system. We hope to provide meaningful information and resources to support education efforts across Michigan. Together, we can make more informed decisions about how to manage our discards, preserving our landfill space, improving our economy, and preserving natural resources.
