Step 3. Apply for Money
Building a recycling program from the ground up can seem overwhelming and costly. How do you make decisions like selecting which recycling bins to buy and deciding how many to purchase? Where does the money come from? If your business is struggling to find a way to fund a recycling program, you can apply for a BizRecycling Grant.
