Abby Bowman and Richard Kelsey with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) presented this year’s grant check of $24,618.00 to the East Alabama Recycling Partnership (EARP). Environmental Services Director Terry White and Superintendent William Stabler are accepting the check on behalf of the EARP.
Opelika will use funds from this check to purchase additional carts for curbside recycling. Since the beginning of this grant program EARP has received over $1,200,000. ADEM has played a huge part in the growth of recycling in Opelika, Auburn, Lee County and the Auburn University community.
