Grant Application Currently Open
MRC is currently accepting micro grant applications for its second grant cycle from facilities that currently collect or will collect discarded mattresses from the public for dismantling by MRC-contracted recyclers. Up to $10,000 is available per collection site. Eligible projects include infrastructure 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 increasing safety or lowering program transportation costs by transitioning existing collection sites from roll-off containers to 53’ trailers for mattress consolidation.
Applications will be accepted through November 15, 2019. For questions regarding the application process, contact Abbie Beane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
