Meeting set for recycling grant program

The Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District will offer grants in the second round of the Competitive Funding Program in 2012. Eligible participants are required to attend a meeting prior to submitting an application. 
The grant program’s main priority is to set up recycling programs for educational institutions, non-profit organizations, townships, cities and villages in Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties. Once a recycling program has been established, an agency can apply for funds for products made from 25 percent recycled material. The District cannot fund any privately owned businesses.

Deadlines for remaining funding rounds in 2012 are as follows: June 30 and Oct. 31. Applicants are required to attend an informational meeting held the first week of each deadline month at the District office in Fremont. The second round meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, June 7.
