Did you know there are grants for recycling infrastructure?
The Community Champions Program (CCP) is a grant program that’s specially designed for not-for profit organizations and municipalities in Alberta. It is a positive approach to building participation in beverage container recycling. The program provides funding for specialized recycling bins (indoor and outdoor) and start-up support to the CCP, by ensuring more accessible and convenient out-of-home opportunities for recycling.
The funding is allocated on a first come, first serve basis until all the funds have been distributed or until November 30th, whichever occurs first. You can submit more than one application during the year, but your combined applications can’t exceed a total value of $20,000 excluding GST. This program helps to keep beverage containers out of landfills, and provides important financial and social benefits for communities.
With these grants for recycling infrastructure, Alberta’s community organizations help to educate the public about the benefits of recycling.
