On November 12, at the SERDC Summit in Charleston, SC, the Coca-Cola Foundation announced an award of $500,000 to the Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC) to expand recycling in the Southeast through the launch of a Recycling Infrastructure Grant Program.
The grant program, implemented over the next two years, will make measurable improvements and catalyze investments in recycling infrastructure. Southeastern communities can apply for grant funding. Recycling carts, material recovery facility (MRF) upgrades, recycling trucks, or transfer station construction will be included as eligible under the RFP if it leads to unlocking investments in curbside recycling infrastructure overall. The grant targets investment in infrastructure that unlocks new material supply that is currently being landfilled.
Organizations are invited to read more and download the application criteria for the grant.
