The award is based upon the 3407  tons recycled in 2008 and the  townships population, Santarsiero’s press release said.

The funding comes from the Recycling Performance Grant Program which awards incentives to local communities “to increase the amounts of materials recovered through recycling  and promote economic growth in the Commonwealth through job creation and market expansion” the Press release said.

DEP continues to make solid investments in our region,” Santarsiero said. “This support for our municipalities’ recycling programs will help to raise public awareness about recycling and enable all of us to reduce what we throw away”

BuxMontNews has reached out to Rep Santarsiero for more about today’s announcement.
