Massachusetts Planet Aid awarded huge grant by Baker-Polito Administration

We have exciting news to share for Planet Aid’s Massachusetts (MA) location! Planet Ais is pleased to share that it has been selected as a recipient of up to $200,000 by the Baker-Polito Administration. The Recycling Business Development Grant (RBDG) was awarded to five Massachusetts businesses/organizations on July 21, 2021. Administered by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), Planet Aid will benefit from funding by expanding and upgrading recycling systems.

Governor Charlie Baker stated, “Recycling plays an important part in the Massachusetts economy, employing thousands of people and converting recyclable materials into valuable end-products.” As a condition for funding, grant recipients must meet tonnage goals over two years. Already an integral part of the recycling community, Planet Aid’s textile recycling will further help the Commonwealth’s goal to reduce trash by 1.7 million tons by the year 2030.
