Douglas County Receives $115K Grant Encourage Recycling

Douglas County has been awarded a grant in the amount of $115,400 from the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The money will be used to purchase four compactors/bailers for recycling at the Cedar Mountain Landfill and will help fund projects and initiatives aimed at reducing waste and increasing recycling efforts in the county.

“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources,” said Tiffany Stewart-Stanley, Douglas County Chief of Staff. “Receiving this funding aligns with our Douglas Forward 2025 Strategic Plan and our objective to promote a clean, beautiful, and sustainable community. This grant will help us implement initiatives that will benefit our environment, our residents, and our local economy.”

The Grants Oversight Department and the Public Works Department worked collaboratively to complete the FY23 application and submit the associated documentation. There are no matching funds required for acceptance of the grant funds.
