Nebraska Gets Money for Litter Cleanup Program

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is getting a grant of more than 14-thousand dollars from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality through its Litter Reduction and Recycling Program. The money will buy used oil storage containers as well as a brush chipper. Game and Parks Regional Parks Manager Jim Swenson says all of the state’s parks and recreation areas will benefit. 
Swenson says the chipper will be stationed at the Fremont State Recreation Area but will be rotated to other installations for turning vegetative waste into landscaping mulch and trail surface materials. The Nebraska Environmental Trust has matched the DEQ grant.
