Larksville receives recycling grant
HARRISBURG, Nov. 1 – State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, announced that Larksville has received a $4,239 grant as a reward for recycling and as an incentive to increase its rate of recycling.
"This is a good investment of state money," Mullery said. "The commonwealth needs to do all it can to encourage recycling because it helps our environment by keeping reusable materials out of landfills and helps our economy by creating local jobs."
Larksville's grant was based on the community recycling 316 tons recycled for calendar year 2009 and the municipality's population. It received the grant under the Recycling Performance Grant Program of Act 101 of 1988.
