WV Gets Recycling Grant


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The state is awarding nearly $1.5 million in recycling assistance grants to 32 agencies and other recipients around West Virginia.

The grant money totaling $1.45 million is heading to solid waste authorities, private industries and counties to purchase vehicles, education campaigns, containers and other purchasing to assist in recycling programs.

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection said the recycling assistance grants are generated through a $1 assessment on every ton of solid waste disposed at state landfills.

Two of the bigger grants are heading to Berkeley and Braxton counties, which are each receiving funding topping $125,000.

The grants are being spent on the purchase of a box truck, a forklift and site improvements at recycling centers.
