WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Work at the Washington Township Recycling Center off Pa. 16 is about to become more efficient thanks to a $292,000 grant that will, among other things, pay for a new storage building on the site.
Township Manager Michael Christopher said the money will be spent to improve facilities and equipment in the township's recycling and trash transfer station. The township has to come up with about $30,000 in matching funds, he said.
The biggest chunk, about $226,000, will be spent on a new 80- by 105-foot, one-story storage building for the recycling center. The new building will be used to store bales of newspapers, plastic bottles and other bundled recycled materials that are now left wherever there is room in the building that processes the materials.
