A grant will help the city of Lebanon continue its household hazardous waste recycling services.

The grant agreement and authorization for the city to spend matching funds were approved at Monday night’s Lebanon City Council meeting.

A grant of $37,078.48 was awarded to the city from the Lake of the Ozarks Solid Waste Management Program. The city will pay $30,989.84 in matching funds.

The grant money comes from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

The grant will provide funds for recycling operations for 300 hours for spring and fall recycling events with 12 staff members. The money will also help with weekly and weekend operations for household hazardous waste and yard debris for 1428 hours, Lebanon’s spring recycling for 51 hours and fall recycling events for 51 hours and the home show for 12 hours and Lebanon recycles movie night at the park for 24 hours.

The grant partially funds district wide household hazardous waste collections, advertising, new hazardous waste equipment including an aerosol can recycle system and recycles movie night.

According to the project description, “Lebanon uses grant funds to provide free household hazardous waste recycling to the district.”

Lebanon’s Recycling center for HHW and Yard Debris drop off is located at the city Public Works facility, 1401 West Commercial Street.

Weekly hours for recycling are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., closed 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. for lunch. Weekend hours are the first and third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The center is closed on holidays.
