Illegal Dump Cleanup

More than $3 million will be distributed to 88 counties to clean up over 12-hundred illegal dumps.

It's the second round of grants from 2002 legislation aimed at doing something about the trash that litters the Kentucky landscape.

Local governments must provide a 25 percent match to obtain the funds.

Dump sites were selected by the division of waste management from a list reported by counties.

They were assigned priority on the basis of contents and environmental factors such as proximity to schools and water sources.
