Frederick County Recycling wins Recycling Cash

Frederick County Recycling in Winchester has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $750 for its Recycling project.

Frederick County Recycling will use their grant award to promote “Recycle Right!” The campaign will educate consumers about what should and should not be recycled, in an effort to avoid the cost of processing and disposing of contaminates that are put in the recycle collection. Banners and signs will be created to continue the ongoing education process, and there will be a contest for best video submitted by a resident that highlights the “Recycle Right” campaign.

Since 2011, we have provided $203,000 for 260 different environmental projects and programs all across the Commonwealth, due to the generosity this year of our partner Altria, as well as additional support from Keep America Beautiful and Coca-Cola.
