The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Community Recycling Awareness Grant

Grants totaling $161,311 were awarded to 33 communities and 13 schools and non-profit organizations in Cuyahoga County. Grants will be used to establish recycling and composting programs in schools and workplaces, purchase recycling containers for public spaces, conduct shred events, and educate residents about curbside recycling via brochures, videos, and mailers. These grants programs were created by the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District to help promote and expand recycling in the county. Grants are awarded annually, on a competitive basis. Applications are due in February each year.
Last year, thirty-eight Cuyahoga County communities received a Community Recycling Awareness Grant which enabled them to collectively distribute recycling information to over 208,500 households, conduct 39 shred days that generated 220.45 tons of paper, and purchase 119 public recycling containers.

Richmond Heights was the recipient of $4637 which will be utilized for funding 2 shred days (May 9, 2015 & September 26, 2015), 40 cases of recycle bags (available to residents now at City Hall in the Recreation Department) and newspaper ads to publicize the shred day events.
