Metro is taking applications for their second round of Investment and Innovation grants. The grants will support creative ideas and build resiliency in the Portland area’s garbage and recycling system to prevent and reduce waste. The first set of 14 grants was awarded last December for projects ranging from improving plastics recycling to providing training opportunities for new garbage and recycling truck drivers. This year Metro looks to focus the grant proposals focusing on strengthening the region’s recycling infrastructure and managing food waste from businesses.
