HARRISBURG – State Senator Gene Yaw (R-23) today announced that Union County will receive state funding to continue promoting its recycling program.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Union County will receive $23,088.48 under the County Recycling Coordinator Grant Program of Act 101 of 1988.

Yaw said the amount will be used to reimburse 50 percent of county recycling expenses.

“Support for recycling and waste reduction efforts at the local level is making a tremendous difference across Pennsylvania,” Yaw said.  “With assistance from the municipalities and counties receiving Act 101 grants, we can further reduce waste and pollution risks, further conserving our natural resources.”
