School Recycling Grants – New Round of Grants Coming Fall 2016
A goal of KLRB is to increase recycling in our community. A main thrust of our recycling committee is to fund recycling grants for Little Rock Elementary Schools, which are to be used to inform, encourage and support school recycling programs,
To that point, KLRB is offering a limited number of one time grants of $300 to schools for assistance and promotion of their in-school recycling programs.
The funds can be used to purchase equipment (bins, carts, containers, etc.) to help implement and enhance the school’s recycling program. Educational materials related to recycling can also be purchased (books, demonstration materials,)
The KLRB grant program will be a competitive process. To receive a copy of the application e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with School Recycling Grant in the subject line.
Curbside Pickup of Recyclables
Our Single Stream Service is available to single family homes in Little Rock. If you do not have a curbside bin call 311 and request that a bin be delivered to your home. It usually takes about a week to get the bin to you.
Did you know that cartons are recyclable in Little Rock? There are two types: shelf-stable and refrigerated. Juice, milk, soup, coconut water and even wine come in cartons. Once your cartons are empty, toss them in your recycling cart. You can leave the caps on and don’t even need to flatten them. For more information, visit www.littlerockrecyclescartons.com.
