The DNREC is offering the Universal Recycling grant and low interest loan program to help Delaware's businesses and institutions comply with its Jan. 1 deadline for the Universal Recycling Law.
There will be $1.5 million available for disbursing to help the commercial sector succeed in recycling. The state's Universal Recycling Law means ensuring recycling services are available for all in Delaware and includes the requirement that all commercial businesses actively participate in a comprehensive recycling program no later than Jan. 1, 2014.
The commercial sector includes any for profit or not-for profit retail or wholesale stores, offices, food service establishments, warehouses and more. DNREC is encouraging not just businesses, but also non-profit organizations and schools to apply for recycling grant funding.
Grant applications will be accepted now until 4:30 p.m. Dec. 18.
