Grants Available to Attend 2022 Resource Recycling Conference

The Recycling Partnership, in association with Resource Recycling, Inc,. is excited to announce applications are live for the 2022 Steve Thompson Memorial Grant Program.

For the first time since 2019, the Resource Recycling Conference will be in-person in Austin, TX from August 15-17, 2022. The grant program provides the opportunity to apply to have conference registration, a two-night hotel stay, and travel reimbursement up to $650 covered for the winners.

The Resource Recycling Conference is the only national event dedicated to enhancing municipal recycling. And recycling industry leader Steve Thompson was a committed recycling champion who worked tirelessly to move the industry forward. The Recycling Partnership and Resource Recycling are continuing to honor him and his life’s work by offering these grants to recycling professionals to attend the conference, network with other recycling professionals, and learn from industry experts.

“We are honored and excited to be back in person at the Resource Recycling Conference this August and, once again to be providing recycling leaders with the opportunity to apply for a Steve Thompson Memorial Grant,” says Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership. “Through this program, state and local recycling leaders have the chance to collaborate, learn from other leaders, and work towards creative solutions that address recycling challenges they face in their communities.”

As a mission-driven organization dedicated to advancing recycling and the circular economy, The Recycling Partnership, is proud to be a carbon-neutral organization by funding unique projects to offset carbon from our offices and travel through Native Energy. When Partnership staff travel to RRC, this will be part of our calculation for 2022 carbon offsets – we hope awarded grantees will consider similar approaches to offset their own carbon footprint.

Applications are being accepted until the end of the day on Friday, May 6, 2022. We hope to see you in Austin!
