Each year, contingent on funds, the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) offers the John Maattala bin grants. John Maattala was a long time RAM member and solid waste officer for Crow Wing County who passed away in 2011. He was a great asset to the solid waste and recycling community, and he is greatly missed by colleagues and friends. John was an avid outdoors man and had served in the U.S. Air Force. This grant honors his dedication and commitment to RAM.
Applications must be submitted by a RAM member to be eligible to receive bins through the grant.
Each year, RAM offers several types of recycling bins, such as Bottle bins, Rubbermaid Half Glutton bins, Paper Desk Side bins, collapsible Fling bins, and ClearStreamTM bins.
Application Deadline: annually in Spring
