Step 3. Apply for Money
Whether your business is just getting started recycling or you want to recycle better, a BizRecycling Grant can help bring a great recycling program within your reach. We offer up to $10,000 in grant funding per business. Your Recycling Expert will assist you with every step of the grant process.

Building a business recycling program from the ground up can seem overwhelming and costly. How do you decide which recycling bins to buy and how many to purchase? Where does the money come from? If your business is in Washington County or Ramsey County, you can get free expert recycling assistance and apply for a BizRecycling Grant to help pay for the things you need to recycle better.
Even if your business is already recycling, there may be room for improvements. A quick, free, on-site consultation with a Recycling Expert can help your business discover recycling and waste reduction opportunities. Maybe you need more or better bins, or better signage, or an enclosure that could accommodate more recycling containers. A BizRecycling Grant can help!
