Lehigh County to Receive DEP Grant, Day Announces

Lehigh County will receive nearly $90,000 in state funds to revise its solid waste management plan, Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks) said today.


As part of the Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) County Planning Grant Program, Lehigh County will receive $89,600 in reimbursement from the Commonwealth for up to 80 percent of the cost to revise the plan.


“As Lehigh County’s population expands, the county is responsible for ensuring that solid waste is managed appropriately,” Day said. “As populations shift around the county, recycling becomes an everyday habit and new technologies emerge, it is imperative the county update its plan to reflect such changes. I am pleased there is a state grant program that allows the county’s taxpayers not to have to bear the brunt of the cost.”
