NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The city of Natchez, along with the city of Brookhaven and Wilkinson County, received more than $300,000 last week to fund a regional recycling effort.

Natchez Community Development Director James Johnston said the three entities have been awarded a little more than $317,000 through the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality’s Regional Recycling Cooperative Grants Program.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1kQoB7z ) the grant will help pay for educational and marketing efforts to educate residents of participating communities on recycling, as well as transportation and equipment.

Plans for Natchez include placing recycling bins downtown in the Main and Franklin streets area and on the bluff, as well as a compactor at the Natchez Convention Center for use by downtown businesses.
