Eligibility Requirements and Project Criteria

Zero Waste Funding projects provide an opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to participate in Boulder county's vision of becoming a zero waste community. The details of this vision are  outlined in the Boulder County Zero Waste Action Plan. In addition to programs supported in prior years, programs with an emphasis on resource diversion (tons diverted from landfill) for businesses, residents and government buildings are encouraged to apply. The county will also accept and consider applications for programs that fall outside of this limited focus.

Established in 1997, this funding has awarded more than one million dollars for education and infrastructure initiatives that promote waste reduction and diversion. This next cycle of project funding will begin in January 2016.
