East Lansing receives grants to improve recycling program

   

The City of East Lansing received more than $18,000 in grants from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to further its recycling programs. 

A recycling infrastructure grant gave the city $14,760, and with additional funds from the city, around $20,000 will be spent to improve infrastructure, Environmental Services Administrator Cathy DeShambo said.

Part of that program will include increasing the “parrot green” recycling containers on the sidewalks of greater downtown East Lansing. Read the full article here.
