MUNICIPAL CLEAN-UP PROGRAM
Sullivan County, Taylor Recycling and Waste Management join with Sullivan Renaissance to announce matching grant program
June 5, 2007
[LIBERTY] – Awards for the Sullivan Renaissance Municipal Clean-Up Program will be announced on Monday, June 11 at 10:30 a.m. at 228 North Main Street in the Village. The program provides matching grants to assist municipalities with the clean-up of roadside sites and the removal of derelict, unsightly and unsafe structures.
In addition to Sullivan Renaissance, this collaborative effort includes: the Sullivan County Legislature and Division of Public Works (DPW); Taylor Recycling Facility LLC of Montgomery, NY; and Waste Management of Beach Lake, PA. Municipalities may use in-kind contributions, private and/or foundation funds, and other sources of revenue for their match.
A news release and photos of clean-up sites will be distributed. Among those present will be: representatives of municipalities receiving grants; officials from the Sullivan County Legislature and DPW; executives from Taylor Recycling Facility and Waste Management; members of Sullivan Renaissance steering committee and staff.
Sullivan County is helping with disposal of the solid waste in the county landfill on a space available basis. Taylor Recycling Facility will haul and dispose of the material from the building on North Main Street in Liberty. Waste Management will haul and dispose of roadside waste from municipal cleanups in Fallsburg, Mamakating and Thompson.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Youth participation is supported in part with a grant from the Louis R. Cappelli Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
Other programs include: three categories of grants based on the size of the projects; special awards for environmental impact, historic preservation, showing of flowers and project maintenance; mini-grants; seasonal community matching grants; and SCCC scholarships. The school spruce up program assists young people with beautification projects at their school grounds or in their communities.
