The grant program provides funds annually for integrated waste management activities in Nebraska.  The funds awarded to the Northeast Nebraska RC&D Council will be used for three Household Hazardous Waste collection events.  Properly disposing of approximately 11,000 pounds of household hazardous waste will help keep these hazardous materials out of landfills, road ditches, and from being burned while assisting citizens in cleaning up properties.  The events will be held this fall.  Watch for site specific information to come.

The RC&D Council is to be commended for their continued efforts to improve Nebraska’s environment through responsible solid waste management activities.
