The Energy and Environment Cabinet’s Division of Waste Management announced 47 recycling and 22 household hazardous waste (HHW) grants to expand recycling, reduce the amount of solid waste going into landfills and improve the environmental management of household hazardous waste. The City of Glasgow was awarded a recycling grant for $102,384 to purchase a new baler and a HHW for $12,800 to hold the 2nd annual Household Hazardous Waste collection. With this funding the City of Glasgow continues to expand and improved the local recycling program. The City, the citizens and the employees want to see the program grow and be as efficient as possible. The new baler will increase the bale weight and increase productivity, revenue for the City of Glasgow’s recycling program. The HHW collections help remove pollutants from our water ways, regional landfill located in the City and open dumps. The County has karst topography which allows the drainage from open dumps to directly affect the streams, rivers and lakes. The following items will be accepted during the event.

 

Aerosols, Oil Base Paints and Solvents, Herbicides/Pesticides, Neutral Liquids/Misc Cleaners, Corrosives (Acids/Bases), Reactives/Oxidizers, Non-DEA Pharmaceuticals, Medical Waste/Biomedical Sharps, Oil and Antifreeze, Batteries – Mixed Household, Mercury Devices, Fluorescent Lamps, Televisions, Misc Electronic Scrap, Propane Cylinders (<30lbs), Fire Extinguishers, PCB Ballast, Smoke Detectors.
