Recycling Grants

Purpose: A thriving materials management system in Michigan is created through effective education, a network of successful local programs, innovative market development, public/private partnerships, and more. Since 2014, this has been supported through grants to promote recycling access and education for citizens, address processing and infrastructure needs at recycling facilities and collection sites, and develop end use markets for materials collected in Michigan. Funding is available annually through the Renew Michigan Fund to support projects that contribute to Michigan’s environment through enhanced materials management.
