Business & Multi-Family Apartment Recycling Grant Program

Updated 10/17/16

The City of College Park offers a competitive grant program to help businesses and multi-family properties start or expand recycling at their College Park locations. The grants can help businesses meet the County requirement that all businesses and multi-family properties provide recycling facilities. Eligible projects include:

  • Purchase of specialized recycling dumpsters or carts.
  • Purchase of compaction equipment, interior storage containers, or related equipment for recycling collection.
  • Recycling infrastructure, such as shared recycling dumpsters, carts, pad sites, and/or enclosures.

The grants can cover start-up capital costs for a new recycling program, or other strategies that will create higher levels of recycling. Neighboring businesses are encouraged to submit joint applications.

Please download the guidelines and application and submit the required materials:
