Lane County Waste Management and the City of Eugene have teamed up to offer ten $500 grants each year to schools that become Oregon Green Schools or move up to Merit or Premier level.
These grant funds are provided to cover expenses related to the waste reduction or resource efficiency efforts of the school. Funds will be disbursed at a school-wide assembly or a board or PTO meeting when the school has achieved certification.
Check out the Oregon Green School Website to see who else in Lane County has been certified, and learn all about how to become an Oregon Green School. Click the 'how to join' tab for application forms. Or click here for detailed tips and instructions for application process. To be eligible for the grant, schools must fill out the OGS application using consistent metrics (i.e., report weight volume, not both). And use the Trash Tracking Waste Audit activity worksheets provided to the left.
