McKeesport, January 3, 2013 – State Sen. James Brewster today announced a $19,621 recycling grant for Monroeville.

“This state money will help the municipality strengthen its recycling program,” Brewster said.

“Recycling programs are a great tool for protecting our environment and capitalizing on our resources. I will continue to seek state funds to assist local communities in their recycling efforts.”

The McKeesport Democrat said the grant award was based on the borough’s population and its 3,181 tons of recycled material for 2010.

Established in 1988, the “Recycling Performance Grant Program” is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. The program is aimed at encouraging recycling, economic growth, job creation and market expansion.
