May 29, 2014

A total of 32 companies in North Carolina have been picked by the N.C. Recycling Business Assistance Center to receive a combined $800,000 in recycling grants. A wide range of companies and projects are supported through the 2014 grants, which require a minimum "cash match of 50 percent of the grant award."

The New Mexico Recycling Coalition has handed out a combined $20,000 in grants to three food waste diversion companies. Soilutions, which collects and processes food scraps, received almost $9,000; Reunity Resources, with a pilot food scrap collection program underway in Santa Fe secured more than $6,000; and Knowaste will put to use about $3,500 for public space food scrap collection funding.

The Ohio EPA has awarded $600,000 to two tire recycling initiatives that could add nearly 30 new jobs and result in annual collections of 57,000 scrap tires. The state agency will give $350,000 toward the expansion of a scrap tire processing facility run by Liberty Tire Service, and the remaining $250,000 will go to a company hoping to use recycled tire rubber in the production of new products.
