The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is accepting applications for the new E-Cycle Wisconsin Electronics Collection Grant from entities that will host one or a series of electronics collection sites or events in 2022 or the beginning of 2023. The events or sites must be located in counties that do not currently have a permanent E-Cycle Wisconsin collection site that’s open to all residents.
The DNR plans to award up to $85,000 in grants for this round, with the maximum award per collection event set at $5,000 and the maximum award per permanent collection site being $10,000.
The DNR will give priority to projects in Forest, Iron, Kewaunee, Marquette and Price counties because they lack permanent collection sites registered under E-Cycle Wisconsin and did not host a registered collection event during the previous year.
The application deadline is April 29, 5 pm. Find out more and link to the application form at dnr.wisconsin.gov/topic/Ecycle/Collectors.html.
