Northeast Nebraska RC&D Receives Grant from Nebraska Environmental Trust:
The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council is pleased to announce that they will receive $20,292 from the Nebraska Environmental Trust for the “Proper Recycling of HHW and E-Waste” project. The Trust Board announced funding for the project at its meeting on April 2, 2015 in Lincoln. This is the first year of award with a potential for 2nd and 3rd year funding totaling $20,705 and $22,410 respectively. The project is one for the 113 projects receiving $19,491,958 in grant awards from the Nebraska Environmental Trust this year. Of these, 56 were new applications and 57 are carry-over projects.
These projects will properly disposal of and/or recycle approximately 22,500 pounds of household hazardous waste and another 45,000 pounds of electronic waste (E-waste) over a 3-year period. Citizens are continually asking for help with proper disposal and recycling of these types of materials. Keeping hazardous materials out of landfills, road ditches, and from being burned is a priority. From three to six collection events will be held annually within the Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council’s service area.
Locations, dates, and times for these recycling events will be announced.
