Clarke County Litter and Recycling Committee

The Clarke County Litter and Recycling Committee has been in existance since the mid 1980's in various forms.  The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality  (DEQ) provides funds for litter prevention and recycling grants to localities under a non-competitive grant program based on population and road miles. These grants have been awarded annually, since 1980, to localities for local litter prevention and recycling program implementation, continuation, and/or expansion.  Clarke County received $6,500 last year for the Litter and Recycling program. Visit DEQ's website for more information on State litter and recycling initiatives.
