Domicology Team Awarded Major State Grant to Develop Recycling Market Sector
The Domicology team at the CCED has been awarded a $600,000 state grant by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE) to develop the capabilities of Michigan's recycling sector.
This grant will fund an analysis of Michigan's salvage and recycling sectors, identifying training and technical assistance needs of the diverse businesses salvaging, reusing, and reselling valuable structural materials. By conducting primary materials research and developing the circularity of the reuse economy, Domicology can help these salvage and reuse enterprises better manage challenging waste streams.
With this generous state funding, Domicology can help meet the training and technical assistance needs of this sector, developing relationships between the various salvage and reuse enterprises and working to reduce the amount of valuable structural materials ending up in Michigan's landfills.
