Clermont, Adams Counties get recycling/litter grant | Environment
COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) - State Representative Joe Uecker (R-Loveland) has announced that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention has awarded a $28,500 Community Development Grant to the Adams/Clermont Solid Waste District to assist in the collection or processing of recyclable materials.
“I am pleased to see that Clermont County will be receiving this grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources,” Rep. Uecker said. “The residents should be proud to know that their community is going to become a better and cleaner place to live as a result of this grant.”
More than $1 million will be distributed among 23 Ohio communities for this purpose. Local groups such as counties, solid waste districts, villages and solid waste management districts will use the money for recycling drop-offs, construction material recycling, litter collection and material recovery facility recycling in communities across the state.
The Community Development Grant program provides financial assistance based on financial need of the applicant, demonstration of positive economic and environment impact regionally or statewide, and potential for the project to expand into a permanent service or program that does not need outside funding. Grant communities must commit local matching funds toward their project.
