The Poarch Band of Creek Indians has received a grant from the federal government to ramp up recycling efforts with the city of Brewton, the tribe announced Friday.

“Through this grant, we will be able to conduct a recycling feasibility and sustainability study to make improvements needed, provide education and outreach, as well as increase community recycling by providing more community recycling containers,” Kristi Weatherford, Poarch Band of Creek Indians Director of Environmental Programs, said in a news release. “We are excited to continue our work with local partners like the City of Brewton, in growing a healthy relationship for both environmental education and active recycling efforts.”
