WEST LIBERTY, W.Va.
West Liberty University is getting a $24,760 grant from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection to continue its recycling efforts.
The money will be used to help buy recycling storage buildings, recycling containers, a utility vehicle, recycling bags and an industrial scale.
The funding program was made possible by the West Virginia Legislature through a $1 fee imposed on every ton of solid waste disposed of at state landfills. The money is available to any county, municipality, public or private entity in West Virginia interested in planning and implementing recycling programs or related public educational programs.
