RREO Grants Projects for Fiscal Year 2012

Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Fund Grants Program – Final Reports (FY2009)


The Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Act created a recycling grant program (RREO Grant Program) that is intended to fund implementation projects that promote economic development through the productive management of recyclable materials that would otherwise be treated as discards. Projects that meet this goal may be designed to implement source reduction, recycling, beneficial use/re-use, anaerobic digestion, or composting, for a wide variety of materials.

Part of the requirements of the grants is to provide a final report (and other supporting documentation if available) to share the successes and/or unanticipated outcomes or roadblocks of the project. The information is intended to give an overview of the project. If you would like further details, the grantees’ contact information is provided.
