Recycling Grants Headed for Baldwin and New Kensington

RecyclingBaldwin Borough in Allegheny County and New Kensington in Westmoreland County are set to receive grants to support their recycling efforts, according to state Sen. Jim Brewster.

Baldwin will receive $264,681 and New Kensington $98,716.

“Recycling grants help municipalities deal effectively with reducing waste and extending the life of landfills,” Brewster said.  “Recycling helps the environment and provides a way to remove waste.

“Recycling is a win for municipalities, citizens and the environment.”

The Wolf Administration said today that $37 million will be distributed to nearly 200 local and county governments for recycling efforts. 

Brewster said the funds can be used not only to bolster recycling, but funds may also be employed in leaf litter collection and education.

“I am pleased that this grant funding was approved and certain that it will be put to good use in New Kensington and Baldwin,” Brewster said. 

The lawmaker said that the funds were approved under the Department of Environmental Protection’s Recycling Development and Implementation Grant program.

Under the program, municipalities are eligible for up to 90 percent funding.
