Madisonville Receives Litter Grant

city madisonville2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (12/12/13) — The City of Madisonville has been awarded grant money for 2014 that will help clean up efforts around town.

According to a press release from Community Development Director Daron E. Jordan, the Kentucky Division of Waste Management has awarded the city a little more than $11,000 in Litter Abatement Grant funds.

While the city of Madisonville doesn't suffer from vast amounts of litter, the grant will help make the city even more attractive, said Madisonville Mayor David Jackson.

“These state funds are important in our efforts to address Madisonville's litter problem,” said Jackson. “We appreciate the Kentucky Division of Waste Management helping communities offset costs associated with litter abatement efforts. We are fortunate that Madisonville residents take pride in our community and we don't experience large scale litter problems as witnessed elsewhere. However, litter is still an issue that must be addressed as attested by the 675 50-gallon bags of litter that were collected in 2013 through our litter abatement efforts.”

Jordan said the abatement program is in addition to standard clean-up efforts.

“The Litter Abatement Program compliments our normal sanitation services through directed clean-up of litter found within our community. This program utilizes paid and non-paid personnel to clean litter along city streets throughout the year. These clean-up efforts exceed the total street miles within the City of Madisonville and occur on a weekly basis throughout most of the year.”

The state Litter Abatement Grant Program began in 2002 and is administered by Kentucky Division of Waste Management. Since the inception of the grant program, the city of Madisonville has been awarded more than $90,000 in grant funds for litter abatement activities.
