Sometimes it's good to talk trash.
On Wednesday, the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District announced the recipients of its 2013 Community Recycling Awareness grant Recycling Container grant.
Good news is, Westlake made the cut.
The grants total $221,338, and were awarded to 38 communities and 33 schools and non-profit organizations throughout the county, according to Diane Bickett, executive director of the CCSWD.
"Grants will be used to establish recycling programs in schools and workplaces; purchase recycling containers for city parks and ball fields; and to educate residents about community recycling programs," said Bickett.
