BP donated $22,625.00 for DEP-BP approved environmental initiatives throughout the commonwealth. BP and DEP used $2,534.84 of the total available money to purchase 35 95-gallon recycling carts for the collection of recyclable materials at schools in Cameron, Clearfield, Columbia and Northumberland counties in DEP’s Northcentral Region. Pictured below is one of the recycling carts being used at both Berwick Middle School and Berwick High School in Colombia County. The school district is very happy with the recycling containers because the containers are very visible for students, large enough to hold a lot of recyclables, and because they are wheeled, making them easier for school staff to empty.
