The Energy and Environment Cabinet’s Division of Waste Management is calling for grant applications for two of its signature programs, illegal dump cleanup and the cleanup of litter along public roads. EEC Secretary Charles Snavely said these programs help Kentucky Communities maintain their natural beauty and improve quality of life. Since 2003, state and local governments have cleaned more than 2.6 million miles of roadways with help from these grants. Counties in compliance with their five-year solid waste management plan can now apply for funds for these cleanup programs. Applications are due by 4:30pm Wednesday, November 1, 2017.
