City of Washington Recycling Grant Award/Earth Day

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON     This Earth Day, the City of Washington and Beaufort County Schools are continuing their efforts to create and maintain a safe and clean environment for the community. Therefore, The City of Washington is proud to announce the procurement of $24,000 in state grant funding for a Recycling Improvement Project in partnership with Beaufort County Schools. The goal of this project is to enhance and secure community access to recycling receptacles and to promote waste reduction measures. This grant will enable greater educational outreach and provide proven methods to foster a cleaner future for The City of Washington.

    On April 7, 2020, the NC Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service officially approved the City's 2020 Community Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant proposal to purchase bins and educational materials. The equipment to be purchased will be manufactured locally and will be placed at different locations in the Sports Complex, Festival Park, and participating Beaufort County schools. In addition, this project will include an education component, utilizing lessons and activities from the Recycling Simplified Education Program as granted by Republic Services. This component is an initiative to start and expand a recycling curriculum within each participating school. Earlier in February, school representatives decided on whether or how to collaborate with the City. All participating schools will receive customized recycling containers, and some of them will implement the Recycling Simplified curriculum. The following is the list of schools impacted by this grant cycle:

  • Educational Technical Center
  • Southside High School
  • Washington High School
  • Northside High School
  • Northeast Elementary School
  • S.W. Snowden School
  • Bath Elementary School
  • Eastern Elementary School
  • J.C. Tayloe Elementary School

    Consistent with the grant contract, the project is expected to begin on July 1, 2020 and end on June 30, 2021. The anticipated results of this program include continuous support for proper recycling education from all residents and visitors of the county, increased recycling participation rate, pollution and waste reduction within our community, and conservation of valuable resources.
