Dinniman announces recycling grant for Franklin Township

08/21/2014 09:28AM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print



State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that Franklin Township will receive $3,073 in state funding to support its recycling efforts.

Under the Department of Environmental Protection’s Recycling Performance Grant Program, municipalities are awarded grants based on their population and the amount recycled.

Franklin Township recycled a total of 344.1 tons during the 2012 calendar year.

“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 program provides incentives to help Pennsylvania communities increase the amount of materials recovered through recycling.
