NEW GRANTS PROGRAM- BIZAWARE- NOW LIVE
Calling all business organizations in the East Metro! Got a great idea to get other businesses to go green? Use our green to get going!
We’re rolling out a new grants program that we’ve named BizAware or Advocates for Waste and Recycling Education. BizAware grant funds are available to Ramsey and Washington County business associations (like Chambers of Commerce, Business Leagues, Economic Development Commissions/Authorities, and Non‐profit Development Corporations) to develop a program and outreach to member businesses and business audiences about the importance of recycling, including the free services provided by BizRecycling.
We know that recycling is not the primary focus of most businesses and it can be confusing to develop a program that meets an individual business’s needs. That’s where BizRecycling can help by offering free technical assistance, grant funding to help cover startup costs, and free labels to ensure a successful program. As a business association, you have the respect of your member businesses and the platform to communicate the importance of recycling and these free resources that are available through the BizRecycling program, so become our partner and receive up to $15,000 a year for up to 5 years to help us spread the word!
