Special to 1812Blockhouse

The Ohio EPA is awarding more than $1.5 million this year in grants to 23 local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations throughout northwest Ohio to implement recycling, litter prevention, market development, and scrap tire recycling programs. Statewide, the Agency is issuing more than $6 million in grant funding to 103 recipients, with more than $3.1 million specifically for community and litter prevention grants.

Local governments and other entities use these grants for litter collection, education programming, and the disposal of scrap tires through amnesty collection events. All local cleanup efforts involve the work of volunteers and take place on public property. Some of these grants tie into a statewide litter campaign, A Little Litter is a Big Problem, announced by Governor Mike DeWine on April 22 to prioritize and promote the conversation around litter in Ohio.
