NCER, Amandi Services receive grant.
REAP grants provide assistance to counties, municipalities and other operations that plan and implement recycling and education programs and recycling market efforts.
The grant will help NCER and Amandi Services continue their electronics collection program throughout the state. The 2006 program was made possible through a grant from the West Virginia High Technology Consortium Foundation. Nine electronics recycling collection events were held throughout West Virginia.
"We are very excited to be one of the many worthy recipients under this year's REAP Statewide Recycling Program," NCER Executive Director Jason Linnell says. "The funding will enable us to build on the success of the 2006 program and test new ideas and methods of electronics collection and public education."
Amandi Vice President Joe Nardone says that the funding will enable the safe demanufacturing of the end-of-life electronics received through the collection events in the state. He adds, "Our West Virginia facility near Parkersburg is continuing to expand, and we look forward to offering more opportunities for state residents to properly recycle their used electronics."
The NCER will continue to partner with the West Virginia Solid Waste Management Board, WVDEP and county Solid Waste Authorities to arrange electronics collection events and programs. In addition to one-day events, the 2007 program will also select at least one location in West Virginia to host an ongoing collection program, comparing the results to the single-day collection events.
