The Recycling Market Development Program makes available grants to aid private businesses in the purchase of equipment specifically needed to remanufacture recyclable materials into finished products or industrial feedstocks.
Grants range from $25,000 up to $200,000 with a required 50 percent match. Deadlines for future funding rounds have not yet been announced for 2014. Complete instructions and information regarding eligibility criteria is found on the IDEM Forms page.
The program is administered by IDEM and operates under the Recycling Market Development Board as established by IC 4-23-5.5. The Board determines all final funding for eligible projects. Approval of funding is announced at subsequent Board meetings. Grant rounds are competitive.
The Indiana Recycling Market Development Board commissioned a municipal solid waste characterization study to determine the types of recyclable materials still going into Indiana landfills. The study completed by Purdue University—Calumet allowed college students to discover first-hand the challenges in measuring Indiana’s waste stream.
