Have an idea to engage residents? Here’s your shot at funding

Community engagement is one of recycling's most persistent challenges. From small collection depots to state-of-the-art MRFs, the quality and volume of recyclable materials depends on the everyday choices made by individual consumers.

This is just one of the areas in which creative minds in the recycling industry think there is room for improvement. Don't let your great idea get lost in the shuffle. Apply today to the 2014 Recycling Innovators Forum for a chance to get your concept in front of the industry's biggest decision-makers and possibly win $20,000 in funding.

The deadline for Forum submissions has been extended to May 30, meaning there's still time to write up and enter your short proposal.

The second annual Recycling Innovators Forum is sponsored by Alcoa, the American Chemistry Council, Coca-Cola Recycling, Resource Recycling (the parent company of this publication) and Waste Management. The competition will be held on Sept. 15, the day before the start of the annual Resource Recycling Conference in New Orleans, and will award two $20,000 prizes: one to the top idea submitted by an individual or small group of entrepreneurs, and another to the top proposal from an established company or organization.

For more information about competing in, or attending, this free event, visit recyclinginnovators.com.
