Division of Waste Management Seeks Applications for Illegal Open Dump Cleanup, Litter Abatement Grants

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 18, 2021) – The Energy and Environment Cabinet’s (EEC) Division of Waste Management (DWM) is calling for grant applications for two of its signature programs, illegal dump cleanup and the cleanup of litter along public roads.

“These two grant programs have successfully helped cities and counties across the state keep roadsides litter free and eliminate illegal open dumps,” said EEC Secretary Rebecca Goodman. “Since 2006, the Illegal Open Dump Grant has funded the cleanup of 2,330 dump sites and the Litter Abatement Grant has assisted every county in maintaining the natural beauty of their roadways.”
