News from Commonwealth News Center
FRANKFORT, KY (Fri 6 Jan 2017) - The Energy and Environment Cabinet's Division of Waste Management (DWM) is accepting grant applications for projects that develop an integrated infrastructure and offer public education programs on recycling, and for household hazardous waste (HHW) collection events.
Examples of grant eligible recycling equipment include vertical and horizontal balers, sorting conveyors, forklifts, skid steer loaders, scales, manual pallet jacks and collection "drop-off" trailers, as well as education and advertising promotions. During the HHW events, funding covers proper disposal of hazardous materials by an authorized vendor, education and advertising costs.
Grant funding comes from the Kentucky Pride Fund and is underwritten by a $1.75 per-ton fee on municipal solid waste disposed of in Kentucky's contained landfills. Local governments, solid waste management districts, public schools, universities and colleges are eligible to apply. Priority is given to applicants who propose regional projects.
Applications must be postmarked no later than April 7, 2017, or hand-delivered to the recycling assistance section of the Recycling and Local Assistance Branch by 3pmCT/4pmET, April 10, 2017. Applications must be the original version and contain any supporting documentation in order to be complete. Each grant requires a 25 percent local match.
