2018 Application Open

Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant Program

Available October 6, 2017
Due December 8, 2017 by 5:00 p.m.

The Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant Program is made possible through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District.

The District’s objective is to assist local governments, businesses, industries, private organizations, non-profits, and individuals in implementing and enhancing an integrated solid waste system that minimizes the amount of solid waste being generated while promoting the reuse and re-manufacturing of recyclable materials. 

Funds for the program come from a portion of the local contribution to the State Solid Waste Management Fund created pursuant to RSMo Section 260.335.2(4).  The source of these funds is a $2.11 per ton fee levied at solid waste landfills within the District; $1.40 per ton at demolition landfills in the District; and $2.11 per ton at transfer stations for solid waste transported out of the state for disposal.
