Earlier this week, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s (KDHE) solid waste reduction initiative issued thousands of dollars in grants to cities across the state.

Grants equaling $333,037 were handed out by the KDHE to 14 cities, counties, and organizations earlier this week. The agency mentioned that the purpose for the grants is for developing and operating recycling operations, reducing waste, public recycling education, and more.

“These grants will help cover the costs of proper disposal of many materials including scrap tires and assist local efforts to promote litter and waste reduction,” Secretary Janet Stanek said. “KDHE applauds the creativity and innovation of our communities in reusing materials that help protect the health and environment of all Kansans.”

Grants were awarded to local businesses such as Kansas Trophy Outfitters ($62,700) and waste services included Lake Region Solid Waste Authority ($5,854.40). The City of Abilene in Dickinson County was awarded a grant of $46,516, the most of any city on the grant list.
