HARRISON COUNTY — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has awarded Harrison County a solid waste assistance grant of $70,000 that will be used by the county for a household hazardous waste collection event to be held in the spring.
“The Solid Waste Assistance Grants support a variety of useful solid waste management activities for cities and counties, and this grant will assist Harrison County’s efforts in improving their management of solid waste,” said Trudy D. Fisher, MDEQ executive director.
Cities and counties may apply for Solid Waste Assistance Grants through the MDEQ. These grants are used by local communities for programs to prevent and clean up unauthorized dumps; to aid in hiring local solid waste enforcement officers; for public education efforts on solid waste disposal and recycling; and to establish programs for the collection of white goods, bulky wastes and recyclables.
