Funding for this program is made possible through the South Carolina Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling (Office). These are classified as state fee funds.

Collegiate Recycling Grant applications are accepted annually, as funding allows. The 2017 application deadline has passed. Please contact for more information, and continue to check this page for updated information. The Office expects to offer funding again during Summer 2018.
