Recycling Equipment Grants

New Hampshire communities are eligible to apply for funding from New Hampshire the Beautiful to assist with the purchase of recycling equipment. Grant applications are considered on an individual basis and funding may be up to one-half the purchase price of the equipment. These grants are to help fund the purchase of curbside collection bins, balers, crushers, roll-off containers and other equipment that will help a community achieve higher diversion rates. The purchase of land, studies or buildings are not eligible.

Recycling Equipment grant applications are accepted on a rolling schedule, with current applications being considered every two months and up to nine months to allow communities to purchase and install suitable equipment. Grants are paid as a reimbursement to communities after they have purchased the equipment. Priority is given to communities demonstrating the greatest need, where the funding can help the greatest number of people, and where money has not been previously expended. Equipment purchased with NH the Beautiful grant money must be used exclusively for recycling and communities that discontinue their recycling programs must either repay the grant or work with NH the Beautiful to transfer the equipment to another community for use in recycling.
