Nebraska Recycling Council is happy to report that from 2016-2018, 26% of the grants funded were awarded for used equipment or to repair existing equipment. 40% of the grant funds were used for cities/villages with populations less than 5,000 in Nebraska. The following map shows the relative fund disbursements in each territory. The 55 recycling equipment grants awarded in this period serve more than 978,382 people in Nebraska. We are proud to partner with Nebraska Environmental Trust!
To date, 108,287,274 pounds have been recycled, just in this grant period without all the recycling reports yet submitted. For more info and to apply for a recycling equipment grant: https://nrcne.org/equipment-grants/
