CSWD Finance Department
Each CSWD member community government is allocated an annual grant, based on the size of their population, for community cleanup and waste reduction or prevention projects. These projects involve the cleanup of solid waste at public or private property where the project is deemed beneficial to the community at large. Funds may be used for reimbursement of disposal, labor, container rental, and/or transportation costs associated with solid waste removal, prevention or reduction events.
To request funding for a project:
- Submit the request form online for approval.
- Print and complete the Community Clean Up Fund project request form. Submit by fax or mail. Contact information is on the form.
If you have a project that you think is eligible for this fund, contact your local Clean Up Fund representative, listed below by town.
Funds may be used for any or all of three purposes:
- Cleanup projects
- Waste reduction events or projects
- Waste prevention events or projects
The member town/city’s CSWD Commissioner must approve the project. Details of the complete process and project qualifications are outlined in this document:
