Environmental protection is at the core of the organization – it drives our daily operations, as well as all programs and services we offer.

Metro Waste Authority has provided nearly $1 million to its member communities through grants for cleanups, waste reduction, and diversion since 2001. The grant program offers reimbursement to schools, public, and private groups/clubs, and neighborhood associations for projects with an environmental focus that are located in our service area.

As part of our commitment to the environment, we offer grant programs that encourage this work of others.

Metro Waste Authority is proud to support two large scale community projects once a year. We  also provide catalyst funding for small to mid-scale projects in our service area!
