MMSB School Recycling Program

The Multi-Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB) Beverage Container Recycling Program runs September to June and is open to all K-12 public and private schools in Newfoundland and Labrador. This program assists schools in developing or expanding environmental activities or program.

To be eligible for the School Recycling Program, schools must register with MMSB. Schools can enter the Program at any time during the school year. The MMSB will pay schools 5¢ for non-alcoholic beverage containers* and 10¢ for alcoholic beverage containers. At the end of each month, Green Depots fax their record sheet to the MMSB reporting recycling volumes for each school for that month.

CCNL Youth Engagement Funding Initiative

The Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador (CCNL) has offered the Youth Engagement Funding Initiative since 2007. This program provides grants of up to $1,000 to youth throughout Newfoundland and Labrador who wish to pursue academic activities relating to climate change. Applicants may apply as an individual or as part of a group, class or organization in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Past Programs

Examples of activities funded in previous years include planting trees and other native vegetation, starting a school composting project, and classroom projects designed to educate students about alternative energy.
