The City of Manassas and American Disposal Services have awarded a Community Recycling Grant award to the Wellington Community Association. The “Try it” Grant of $1,000 has been awarded to help them increase recycling in their public spaces.
City of Manassas Refuse and Recycling Coordinator, Monica Boehringer said, “We’re happy to help the Wellington Community raise awareness of the importance of recycling through our Community Grant program. Empowering communities to take action and help keep Manassas beautiful.”
The Try it Grant is the first step in the City’s small grants program developed by the City of Manassas. The grant is open to Home Associations that are passionate about improving their community and gaining skills for their own experience and social benefit. HOA members know their particular community and the challenges faced as well as the opportunities that will benefit community members.
“American is excited to partner with the City of Manassas on this groundbreaking community grant, which is the first of its kind,” Kevin Edwards, General Manager for American Disposal Services, said. “By joining forces with the City of Manassas and involving the community we can explore new ways to improve recycling education and awareness.”
