WEST CHESTER (October 2) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that five Chester County municipalities will receive a total of $ 12,294 in Recycling Performance and Coordinator Grants.

recycpageThe grants, which are based on the amount recycled and the municipality’s population in 2012, were rewarded as follows:

  • Atglen Borough will receive $342 for 56.8 tons recycled.
  • Avondale Borough will receive $3,066 for 203.5 tons recycled.
  • Charlestown Township will receive $4,333 for 667.1 tons recycled.
  • East Nottingham will receive $2,858 for 426.6 tons recycled.
  • London Britain will receive $1,695 for 210.9 tons recycled.

“Recycling is a simple and efficient way to protect the environment, conserve energy and reduce waste,” Dinniman said. “Chester County and its municipalities have come a long way in encouraging recycling and re-using materials, and we can continue to do more. These grants are a great incentive to ensure that we do.”

The grants come through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Recycling Development and Implementation Grant Program. The program provides incentives to help Pennsylvania communities increase the amount of materials recovered through recycling.
