The Closed Loop Fund is accepting proposals for below market loans for cities and companies to improve recycling infrastructure.

We look to attract conventional capital for co-investment and prioritize closing the loop on materials and enhancing existing infrastructure.

We aim to fund replicable and financially viable recycling infrastructure projects across three primary categories: collection, sortation, and processing/end markets. We accept proposals on a rolling basis.

In addition to these three primary categories, the Fund has identified the following priority areas:

  1. Comprehensive infrastructure development in underserved recycling markets. Click here for RFP.
