Grants for Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Programs
DEC is authorized to provide grants for HHW collection days and construction of permanent HHW collection facilities in order to provide a safe alternative for recycling or disposal of household hazardous materials.
Also, the 2016 New York State budget includes funding for electronic waste (e-waste) grants. This temporary infusion of aid is intended to assist municipalities in coping with recent unexpected costs of e-waste collection.
Application Materials for HHW Grants:
Applications are due on the final business day of April, July, October and January of the State fiscal Year. A municipality may apply for HHW funding in the State fiscal year during which collection(s) are held, or in the State fiscal year immediately AFTER collection(s) are held.
After a collection event is held, the applicant must complete a household hazardous waste collection day event report (PDF, 156 KB).
Permitted household hazardous waste facilities must complete an HHW Facility Annual Report (PDF, 268 KB).
Application Materials for E-Waste Grant Assistance:
For the 2016 application cycle, municipalities may submit a supplemental form for E-Waste Assistance Grants either in addition to the usual HHW State Assistance application, or as a stand-alone request.
