Best Buy has launched a consumer electronics recycling grant program that provides two streams of grants – the first stream will provide support for events hosted by 501©3 nonprofit organizations. The second stream will support events hosted by other organizations in cities and townships across the country (cities, counties, public-private partnerships). Grants will range from $500 to $1,500, depending on the size and scope of each organization’s event program and the recycling need in the area.
All qualified organizations are invited to apply. Grant applications are available online at Survey Monkey, or via www.bestbuy.com/recycling or www.e4partners.com. Priority will be given to those applications completed by Earth Day, April 22, 2007.
Sharp has launched a recycling program during the month of April.
