FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Dozens of projects across Kentucky are in line to receive more than $4.7 million in grants to expand recycling, reduce the amount of solid waste taken to landfills and improve household hazardous waste management.

The grants include 37 recycling awards, 28 household hazardous waste grants and 13 composting grants. The Kentucky Pride Fund offers the grants from fees for municipal solid waste disposed of in Kentucky landfills.
