LEE COUNTY, Miss. — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has awarded Lee County a solid waste assistance grant of $21,574 that will be used by the county for a local solid waste enforcement officer.

“The Solid Waste Assistance Grants support a variety of useful solid waste management activities for cities and counties, and this grant will assist Lee County’s efforts in improving their management of solid waste,” said Trudy D. Fisher, MDEQ Executive Director.
