As a nonprofit organization since 1980, we have provided technical and grant assistance to many recycling programs and communities state-wide. We assist hundreds of callers yearly regarding how and where to recycle a wide variety of items and materials. Through the years we have done grant work for various state and federal agencies and private foundations. We are in our 14th year administering a recycling equipment grant, state-wide, with funds from Nebraska Environmental Trust. See the grant tab to the right.
We do not operate a recycling collection center.

Nebraska Academy of Sciences in Lincoln, NE is taking grant applications for their Public Information and Education grants, also called PIE grants ($3,000 maximum). Next grant deadline is July 10th, 2015.
Grant awards will be announced after August 22nd, 2015.

Then choose the first tab "NAS", then "Grants & Scholarships", then "PIE documents". Their funding is provided by Nebraska Environmental Trust.
This is a good opportunity to do a recycling education campaign in your community, perhaps by putting a series of weekly ads in your newspaper (with grant funds). Consider adding social media as well. You might remind citizens what they can recycle, hours of operation, "Did you know" recycling facts, why it's good to recycle and so on.

Jobs Are Tied to High Recycling Rate
January 2012- The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency was asked during an appearance on the Doctor Oz Show, what is the biggest thing people could do to make the world a cleaner, healthier place. She replied, "If we would insist on a recycling rate in our country at 80, 85, 90 percent, we could do a bunch of things. Certainly we would have a cleaner environment. We would save a tremendous amount of water and energy. We would create millions of jobs because recycling, in and of itself, would become a supply chain in our country---a very domestic one. So, although it sounds simple---when you see those recycling bins, when people start to talk about recycling---think of it as a homegrown jobs program, an environmental program, an energy program and a water program all in one!"
