Pennsylvania DEP Announces Recycling Grant Recipients

Municipal Recycling

Agency distributes $17.8 million in recycling grants to 131 municipalities and counties.

Recycling Today Staff February 8, 2013
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has awarded $17.8 million in grants for developing and implementing recycling programs to 131 municipalities and counties in the state.
 
“Recycling plays a key role in improving Pennsylvania’s economy and protecting its environment,” DEP Secretary Mike Krancer says. “These grants further that cause, and DEP is proud to invest in local programs that help the awardees strengthen their recycling programs.”
 
Through the grant program, municipalities and counties in Pennsylvania are eligible for up to 90 percent funding for approved recycling program costs. Municipalities that are designated financially distressed under the Financial Distressed Communities Act are eligible to receive funding for an additional 10 percent of approved costs.
 
Examples of eligible projects include operating compost facilities; developing Web-based programs on recycling for consumers; expanding recycling processing facilities; installing data collection systems on recycling vehicles; continuing and creating curbside recycling programs; and developing educational materials to encourage residents to recycle.
 
Pennsylvania’s Act 101 mandates recycling in municipalities with more than 10,000 residents and those with populations of between 5,000 and 10,000 that have population densities greater than 300 people per square mile. Currently, 440 of Pennsylvania’s 2,700 municipalities are required to recycle and provide curbside collection programs.
