On May 18, 2012
READING, May 18, 2012 — Two local municipalities have been awarded significant state grants for their recycling efforts, according to state Sen. Judy Schwank.
Exeter Township received an $83,897 Recycling Performance Grant based on the 8,808 tons recycled for 2010 and the township’s population.
Muhlenberg Township received a $44,022 Recycling Performance Grant based on the 5,515.8 tons recycled for 2010 and the township’s population.
“Recycling helps the environment and promotes an industry that supports jobs and our economy,” Schwank said. “I’m pleased that the state continues to support community efforts to recycle.”
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protections’ Recycling Performance Grant Program provides incentives to help Pennsylvania communities increase the amount of materials recovered through recycling and promote economic growth through job creation and market expansion.
