 Recycling Grant Opportunity 

The Tennessee Recycling Coalition (TRC) is partnering with Nobody Trashes Tennessee (TDOT) to offer multiple recycling bin grants to public and private K-12 schools, municipalities, state parks, governments, non-profits, and organizations in Tennessee. The grant funding amount is $1,500 per applicant, and two grants will be funded to support a new recycling program or expand an existing recycling program. This grant program supports the mission of TRC, a non-profit organization that works to promote and grow recycling efforts in the state.

Deadline: Applications are due Friday, November 10th, 2023. Please click the link below to go to the application. You must be located in the State of Tennessee to apply. One application per organization will be accepted. TRC will offer a paper application if you have trouble with the online form.  Winners will be selected by November 20th. Bins will ship from Busch Systems, and we are offering two options pictured below. If you have any questions, please email Amber Greene at Winners are responsible for the materials to be picked up and recycled.
