In 2020, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, with support provided by the Richard King Mellon Foundation, provided grants to increase awareness about proper waste disposal, recycling and convenient recycling services. Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling is a proud recipient of the grant with which four videos were created to educate county residents on the services available at our Recycling Center.
