The Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste District offers over 40 locations for residents to bring their bottles, jugs, jars, cans, and cardboard for recycling. The District partners with local governments, schools, and other entities to provide that service to the community. We know maintaining a recycling drop-off location can be challenging, and we want to help.

We are accepting applications for site improvement funds for your local recycling drop-off site. These grants are offered to local governments (townships, villages, cities and counties), schools and other entities that provide District drop-off recycling site locations.

How much funding can applicants receive?

Applicants can receive up to $15,000 for improvements at their recycling site.

How much funding do applicants have to contribute?

Assistance requires a minimum 10% match from the entity hosting the site.

Funding is competitive. Requests may exceed funding, so there is no guarantee your application will be  awarded. Applications will be reviewed by a committee who will make award recommendations to the Board of Directors. The applications must be received via email to jenn@startrecycling.com or mail to the District office at 5138 Enterprise Dr., Warren, OH 44481 by Friday, February 17, 2023.
