The commercial sector generates more than half of the total waste in Hennepin County, and nearly two-thirds of the waste created at businesses and non-profits is recyclable.
Having a strong recycling program conserves natural resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, can help your bottom line, and demonstrates your organization’s commitment to sustainability and the community.
Hennepin County offers grants, signage, technical assistance and case studies to help business and organizations start or improve recycling programs.
Please note that all funding for business recycling grants in 2014 has been allocated. Grant funding will be available again in 2015. Please contact Andre Xiong at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-543-1316 to discuss business recycling grant project ideas and future funding opportunities.
