McKeesport, January 31, 2012 – State Sen. Jim Brewster today announced two grants totaling $1,611 for North Versailles Township’s recycling efforts.
“Recycling is an important means to cut waste and keep our environment clean,” Brewster said. “This funding will help support the township’s continued efforts.”
The grant funds are based on the township’s recycling totals in past years. The funds were awarded through the state Department of Environmental Protection, under the 1988 Recycling Performance Grant Program. Under the program, the grants are incentives to help communities increase amounts recovered through recycling; and promote economic growth through job creation and market expansion.
