Hamilton County eligible for recycling rebates

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- The Department of Environment and Conservation's Division of Solid Waste Management has announced that Hamilton County and cities within it are eligible for recycling rebates.

The decision was based on reports of waste generation data from 2009.

Each dollar made from recycling will be matched. The funds may be used to create new recycling programs, collection sites, preparing recyclable materials for transport, and educational programs to promote and advertise recycling.

A total of $300,000 has been made available by the Solid Waste Management Fund and will be distributed based on the amount of waste created by a county and the county's population.

The other 10 counties eligible for rebates are Davidson, Knox, Loudon, Madison, Montgomery, Rutherford, Shelby, Sullivan, Sumner and Williamson counties.

All counties and municipalities must return an application to the Department of Environment and Conservation to receive the rebate funds.
