Wayne County has been awarded recycling grant funds, as well as 
money for a hazardous household waste disposal event. The Kentucky 
Energy and Environment Cabinet's Division of Waste Management made 
that announcement last week.
    Wayne County will receive $110,750 for its recycling program. The 
county has been awarded $12,000 for household hazardous waste disposal.
    A total of 49 recycling grants were awarded statewide. Twenty-nine 
hazardous household waste grants were approved, as well as six grants 
for composting.
    The Kentucky Pride Fund, which is generated by a $1.75 fee for each 
ton of municipal solid waste disposed of in Kentucky landfills, is 
financing the 84 grants, which total just over $4.6 million.
    The grants require a 25  percent local match in the form of cash or 
"in kind" personnel, educational activities or advertising to promote the program from the cities or counties receiving grants.
