GOV. CASEY ANNOUNCES $5.5 MILLION IN RECYCLING GRANTS

 HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Robert P. Casey today announced the award of 179 recycling, waste planning and performance grants totaling more than $5.5 million to municipalities and counties.
 "This latest round of grants shows that we're making progress towards closing the recycling loop," Casey said. "Pennsylvanians are making the transition from successfully collecting recyclables to successfully marketing them."
 The governor said 21 counties and 49 municipalities will share more than $3.6 million in the latest round of grants to develop waste plans and pay for curbside and drop-off recycling programs, leaf composting facilities, recycling equipment and educational activities.
 Recycling grants may cover up to 90 percent of the cost of developing programs and purchasing equipment, while waste planning grants may cover up to 80 percent of the cost of preparing municipal waste plans, which are required by the state's 1988 recycling and solid waste law.
 The grant awards also include more than $1.8 million in performance incentives to 105 counties and municipalities for their efforts to market recyclables in 1991. Together, these local governments marketed more than 107,000 tons of glass, plastics, paper, aluminum and metal.
 Communities that recycle can receive $5 per ton for each ton of recyclables they successfully market and a $1 per ton bonus for each percent of waste diverted from landfills and incinerators.
 Money for the grants comes from a $2 fee on each ton of waste disposed in landfills and resource recovery facilities.
 The deadline for applying for the next round of grants is May 20 for recycling and planning grants, and June 30 for performance grants. Contact a Department of Environmental Resources regional office or the Division of Waste Minimization and Planning at 717-787-7382.
