LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska officials have awarded more than $2 million in grants for recycling and litter cleanup programs.

The state Department of Environmental Quality announced Thursday that the awards aim to benefit litter cleanup, recycling and public education programs and activities.

The money will be used on multiple programs around the state. Funds for the litter reduction and recycling grant program are generated from a fee charged to companies that commonly contribute to litter.

Acting Director Pat Rice says the agency received many applications for the money. He said the awards will help local efforts to recycle and protect natural resources.
