The grant could allow the authority to acquire some much-needed equipment for the Elk County Community Recycling Center.

At Tuesday's meeting of the Elk County Solid Waste Authority, Elk County Recycling/ Solid Waste Coordinator Bekki Titchner said the county would be pursuing a recycling program (902) grant from the state.
"For the first time in about three years, there is going to be a recycling program equipment grant, but it's a lot more substantial than the last one we applied for," said Titchner, explaining that this round of grants requires a great deal more of information to be submitted to the state. "There's a lot more information they are requesting."
