MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation has received about $160,000 over two years in a Pollution Prevention grant being awarded by Environmental Protection Agency.

The department will use the money to provide assistance through the Vermont Green Business Program and Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence and Pollution Prevention. It also will start an outreach and assistance initiative targeting dairy processors, and another for generators of small quantities of hazardous waste to help increase compliance with regulations.

The grants fund programs that reduce the environmental footprints of businesses through projects that significantly reduce or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land prior to relying on recycling or waste cleanup.
