Maloney Commends Birdsboro Recycling Effort - Legislator also acknowledges Amity and Rockland townships
9/6/2011
HARRISBURG – State Rep. David Maloney (R-Berks) commended Birdsboro Borough on its being awarded a $2,432 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection as a result of recycling efforts in the municipality.

“This grant is the product of borough residents and businesses making a conscious effort to work together to be better stewards of their environment,” Maloney stated. “I’m proud of what they’ve accomplished and it reflects well on their good effort.”

The grant is based on the 228.5 tons recycled in 2009 and the municipality’s population of approximately 5,200. The Recycling Performance Grant program provides incentives to help Pennsylvania communities increase the amount of materials recovered through recycling and promote economic growth in the Commonwealth through job creation and market expansion.

Maloney also recognized Amity and Rockland townships for their receipt of Sewage Facilities Enforcement Grants totaling $13,566 (Amity) and $4,350 (Rockland). The money will be used to reimburse 50 percent of the eligible expenses for performing sewage enforcement provisions.
