During the COVID-19 crisis, Waste Wise is continuing to work with businesses to access grant funds for waste reduction projects. Currently, our restrictions do not allow us to do in-person site visits due to the stay at home order. We are either waiving this requirement until the order is removed or conducting virtual site visits. For more information, contact Rob Friend at email@example.com or 651.292.3915.
Waste Wise saves money and the environment
It’s possible to save money and the environment at the same time. The Minnesota Chamber experts at Waste Wise have provided and secured more than a million dollars in grants for companies that reduce, reuse and recycle waste. Our team can help educate and train your company, and find ways to control waste costs and connect with grants to fund recycling program improvements.

Learn more about and apply for the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce 2019 Business Bin and Label Waste Reduction Grant Program Application (BLWR). The purpose of the BLWR grant program is to motivate business owners to complete projects that would otherwise not get done. Applications for which a verbal or written commitment has already been made to complete the project will not be considered for this grant program.
