The Cape and Islands received $202,400 in Recycling Dividends Program (RDP) Funds. These funds can be used on an expansive list of approved spending for recycling programs. An example of this is our one-day latex paint recycling take back day. All 15-towns participated by paying into the program to fund it using their RDP funds. We were able to collect 174 cars worth of latex paint in the Town of Dennis on Aug 1st, 2020.
Round 2 SMRP will be announced in time.
