7/7/2011

Twenty-six applicants have been approved for amounts totaling $57,241 for state Department of Environmental Protection REAP Litter Control Matching Grants. DEP Cabinet Secretary Randy Huffman announced the grant recipients for fiscal year 2012.

 

Grants were awarded to state solid waste authorities, county commissions and municipalities. Funding for the litter control program is generated through Legislative Rule §22-15A-4: “For unlawful disposal of litter, the circuit clerk shall deposit 50 percent of all civil penalties into the Litter Control Fund.”
