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.
