Money comes to WV to support recycling efforts

Efforts are increasing to boost recylcing in West Virginia. The state is awarding nearly $1.5 million in recycling assistance grants to 32 agencies, including solid waste authorities, private industries and counties. The money will help buy vehicles as well as educational material to assist recycling programs. The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection says the recycling assistance grants are generated through a $1 assessment on every ton of solid waste disposed at state landfills.
