[GreenYes] NYC Group Seeks Recycling Ideas
From RecyclingToday.Com 8/5/02

NYC Group Seeks Recycling Ideas 
INFORM, a New York City-based nonprofit environmental research organization, is requesting submissions of proposals for community-based outreach projects that will either educate New York City residents about waste prevention and recycling or establish additional residential waste prevention and reuse projects in New York City neighborhoods.
Projects chosen after the request for proposal (RFP) stage will be part of a Waste Prevention Community Coordinators Program (WPCCP), a pilot program aimed at improving New York Cityís economy and its environment. Funded by the City Council and the Department of Sanitation, the WPCCP will be geared toward testing the effectiveness of a variety of residential waste prevention and reuse initiatives in New York City.
Seven to ten grants of up to $90,000 each will be awarded to not-for-profit organizations operating within the five boroughs of New York City, enabling them to hire one (or more) waste prevention coordinator(s). The coordinators will work with the Director of the WPCCP, Eve Martinez, to implement community-based outreach and education programs and materials collection programs that reduce the amount of residential waste currently being exported out of state for disposal.
INFORM will host three weekly informational/networking meetings for all interested parties beginning on Tuesday, August 5, 2002 at 6:00 p.m. at INFORMís offices at 120 Wall Street on the 16th floor. INFORM can be reached at 212-361-2400 for those who have further questions.
Submission deadline for RFPs is 6:00 p.m. August 27, 2002 if hand delivered, and postmarked before midnight, August 27, 2002 if mailed.
INFORM Inc. is a New York-based national environmental research organization searching for practical ways to reduce municipal and commercial waste streams.
