West Hazleton Borough Awarded Recycling Grant, Says Toohil
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) is pleased to announce that West Hazleton Borough was recently awarded funding under the Recycling Performance Grant Program, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

The grant of $1,632 is based on the 237.4 tons of materials that were recycled by the borough during 2012 and the size of its population. The Recycling Performance Grant Program provides incentive to help Pennsylvania communities increase the amount of materials recovered through recycling and promote economic growth in the Commonwealth through job creation and market creation.

“I congratulate West Hazleton Borough officials for their recycling efforts, which have resulted in the reuse of more than 200 tons of trash that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill,” said Toohil. “Successful recycling programs like this are good for our communities and for Pennsylvania.”

The grant is in addition to the funds the DEP allocates to municipalities to establish and maintain recycling programs.
