The Miami County Sanitary Engineering Department is seeking a state grant to expand a glass recycling program.

The grant application to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency requests $1,556, or 50 percent, of the cost to buy glass recycling containers, "glass recycling only" stickers and "Miami County Recycles" window clings. The local match would come from departments funds, the county commissioners were told before they approved the grant application recently.

The glass recycling program that currently operates at some Troy restaurants/bars would be expanded to other areas of the county.
