Cabinet Secretary Randy Huffman announced this week the recipients of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) litter control matching grants.
There were 28 individual applicants approved for amounts totaling $71,676.79. The grants were awarded to state solid waste authorities, county commissions, and municipalities. Funding for the litter control program is generated through Legislative Rule §22-15A-4; “For unlawful disposal of litter, the circuit clerk shall deposit 50 percent of all civil penalties into the Litter Control Fund.”
Greenbrier County Board of Health was awarded $3,000. The funding will be used for personnel and mileage reimbursement for the litter control officer program.
