About

By nurturing projects that incorporate waste prevention, repair, reuse, recycling, and/or composting models, the NextCycle Washington program helps develop equitable local economies while reducing waste, keeping materials in use longer, and regenerating natural systems. Participants can be entrepreneurs/start-ups, small businesses, established corporations, non-profits, or a collaboration of entities. By providing technical and business support, NextCycle Washington helps accelerate projects that will improve the state’s circular economy to an investment-ready status. NextCycle Washington is an initiative of King County, Seattle Public Utilities, Washington Recycling Development Center, and the Washington State Department of Commerce.

Project leads do not need to be headquartered in Washington at the time of application, but to be accepted, the project or business idea must be implemented and based in Washington.
