Lincoln, Nebraska, Mar 02, 2011 -- USDA Rural Development has announced that the City of Pawnee City will receive a grant of $8,000 that, leveraged with $6,555 from the City, will purchase and install a multi-bin recycling trailer for the community.
“This is like a dream come true! The recycling trailer is something we have been working on for at least two years. Some of the youth who first started this in motion have graduated, but others have continued to pursue this green dream. We are excited to hear that this joint effort between our city and school will become a reality. Thank you so much,” said Mayor Duane Westing, City of Pawnee City.
The $14,555 for the recycling trailer will establish a stable, sustainable recycling connection for all citizens of Pawnee City.
“USDA Rural Development is very pleased to assist the City in purchasing the recycling trailer. We are excited to support the collaboration between the young citizens and their community,” said Area Specialist Sara Seidel, USDA Rural Development.
Funding was provided through the USDA Rural Development Community Facility Grant program. For more information contact Sara Seidel at (402) 423-9683 ext. 120.
