Application Announcement for the Compost Infrastructure Development Grant Program

[32 Pa.B. 3443]

   Applications for the 2002 Compost Infrastructure Development Grant Program (Program) are now available from the Department of Environmental Protection (Department). Under the program, qualified existing and operating for-profit business entities and nonprofit organizations in this Commonwealth will be awarded grants to increase the quantity of yard waste and/or food wastes collected in this Commonwealth. The goal of this program is to increase the quantity of organic materials collected and composted to further increase this Commonwealth's recycling rate. Applications for the grant program will be accepted by the Department until 4 p.m. on October 11, 2002.

   The municipal waste stream consists of over 30% organic materials that could be recycled and diverted from the waste stream and managed by composting. These organic waste streams such as yard and food wastes can become a resource to compost facilities that use these materials as feedstocks. Composting of organic wastes helps to lessen the burden on landfill capacity and creates a beneficial soil conditioner that can be marketed.

   Applications for the 2002 Program may be obtained by contacting Diana Welker of the Bureau of Land Recycling and Waste Management at (717) 787-7382 or by e-mail at Applications are also available electronically on the Department's website at (directLINK ''Compost'').
