Municipal Grant Program

Tire recycling is good for the environment, but it also directly benefits Albertans.

Alberta Recycling's Municipal Grant Program provides funding to communities to help them purchase and install recycled tire products for community enhancement projects or to upgrade scrap tire collection areas at landfills and transfer stations.

The 2020 Municipal Grant Program is now open.

Following is general information about the two types of grants that are available.


Municipal Demonstration Grant (MDG)

Municipalities, Indigenous communities, schools, and registered non-profit organizations can apply for the grant to purchase recycled tire products for community projects such as playgrounds, arenas, and walking trails (MDG Project Examples).

Privately owned, for-profit companies are not eligible to apply.

If you have any questions regarding this opportunity please email [email protected]
