Day Welcomes Recycling Coordinator Grant for Berks County

Berks County has been awarded a $43,383 grant from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) under the County Recycling Coordinator Grant Program, announced Gary Day (R- Berks/ Lehigh). 

The grant will reimburse the county for 50 percent of the county recycling coordinator’s salary and expenses. The grant is in addition to funds that DEP distributes to municipalities to establish and maintain recycling programs.   

“Raising public awareness about recycling and the state’s support for recycling programs will enable all of us to reduce what we throw away and preserve resources,” said Day. 

The County Recycling Coordinator Grant Program was established by Act 101 of 1988, the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act.  It promotes economic growth and provides municipalities and counties with incentives to increase the amount of recyclable materials recovered from the waste stream.  This grant is in addition to the funds DEP allocates to municipalities to establish and maintain county and municipal recycling programs.
