The cities and park district will promote, develop or enhance recycling or organics collection programs at public spaces or events.

Projects funded through the Public Space Recycling Grants program will add 106 recycling containers to public spaces, provide education and outreach, and evaluate best practices for recycling service. Six of the eight recommended grant projects will begin collecting recyclable materials for the first time. For more details, visit the public spaces recycling grants webpage.
