The Town of Kure Beach is pleased to announce that it is a recipient of the 2012 Community Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant. This grant is sponsored by the N. C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Division of Environmental Assistance and Outreach. The Town received a grant in the amount of $1,000 with a $200 cash match. The grant will be used to redesign and print 5,000 recycling brochures that Town committees initiated. Once printed, brochures will be distributed by the Town’s Beach Protection Committee and the Storm Water and Environmental Committee, Island Women and the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce. Kure Beach is fast becoming a “green” community through the efforts of its committees. Recycling containers are provided free of charge to all residential and commercial properties and the Town provides curbside recycling. The Town will also provide recycling containers at all the beach accesses this tourist season.
