The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is pleased to announce its first cycle of grant program funding for MRC-contracted mattress collection sites. Cycle 1 Collections will award up to $10,000 per eligible site for the purchase of infrastructure and/or equipment that will (1) improve the recyclability of discarded units by providing weather protection for collected units, (2) result in fewer units being landfilled, and/or (3) create other efficiencies, such as lowering program transportation costs by transitioning collection sites from roll-off containers to 53’ trailers for mattress consolidation. The deadline for applications is February 22, 2019 by 5pm PDT. Projects that have an impact in 2019 will be preferred.
The MRC will take comments on this draft solicitation until January 22, 2019, and a final solicitation will be released on January 29, 2019. All comments should be directed to Abbie Beane at email@example.com.
Please see the full Cycle 1 Collections solicitation for detailed project requirements, scoring criteria and application instructions. The work plan and budget templates can be found below and should be included along with the narrative portion of the application described within the solicitation.
