HARVARD– Rep. Jennifer Benson, D-Lunenburg, and Sen. Jamie Eldridge, D-Acton, announce that the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection awarded the town of Harvard a grant totaling $750 through the Sustainable Materials Recovery Program, which will help cities, towns, regional groups and nonprofit organizations to increase the diversion, reuse, composting and recycling of materials in the solid waste stream.

Harvard will receive a Targeted Small Scale Initiative grant. Targeted Small Scale Initiatives provide funding for materials and services that will sustain existing municipal waste reduction programs such as educational materials, public space recycling containers, compost bins, and other small investments that reduce solid waste or increase recycling.
