Indiana will be making available $500,000 to the state Department of Environmental Management's Recycling Market Development Program. The money will be distributed through grants to aid private businesses to help them purchase equipment for recycling. Grants range from $25,000 up to $200,000, with a required 50-percent match. The deadline is June 3, 2013. More information can be found on the department's website.
