JACKSON, Miss. (Press Release) — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) awarded Tippah County a solid waste assistance grant of $13,440 that will be used by the county for clean up of illegal dumping.

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