No one knows your residents like you do. Resource Recovery encourages municipalities to implement local programs that help residents prevent waste, reuse materials, recycle right, and dispose of waste properly. When funding is available and approved by our Board of Commissioners, a competitive, matching grant program is open to RI municipalities. Project-based grants in the form of dollar-for-dollar matches, up to $5,000 per municipality, per fiscal year, are awarded in the Spring (with an March 1 application deadline) and Fall (with an August 1 application deadline), dependent upon the meeting schedule and approval by our Board of Commissioners. Training-based grants for up to $2,000 per municipality, per fiscal year are also awarded on a rolling basis.
