DER AWARDS $147,500 IN HAZARDOUS WASTE RECYCLING GRANTS

 HARRISBURG, Pa., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- State Department of Environmental Resources (DER) Secretary Arthur Davis today announced $147,493 in Hazardous Waste Recycling Equipment Grants to 63 Pennsylvania businesses and industries to purchase or lease equipment to recycle hazardous wastes.
 "These grants help to reduce the nearly 800,000 tons of hazardous waste generated each year by Pennsylvania businesses and industries," Davis said. "By preventing pollution before it's created, businesses can avoid high disposal costs and help protect the environment."
 The grants are authorized under Pennsylvania's Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act, which Gov. Robert P. Casey signed into law in October 1988. They provide 25 percent of the cost of purchasing, leasing or installing recycling equipment. Many of the grants will go to dry cleaners and service stations for solvent and freon recovery.
 Hazardous waste recycling grants are awarded annually. Applications and additional information are available from DER's Bureau of Waste Management, Division of Waste Minimization and Planning, at 717-787-7382.
