KVCOG received funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist communities in cleaning up sites where redevelopment, expansion or reuse is complicated by the presence (or perceived presence) of hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants. Funds are available as grants to municipalities or low-interest loans to private developers. KVCOG works closely with the EPA, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, municipalities, developers and environmental consultants to produce successful redevelopment projects.
Some of our projects include:

KVCOG invites you to join our regional initiative in Textile Recycling.
KVCOG is working with Apparel Impact to place collection bins for textile recycling throughout Kennebec and Southern Somerset Counties. These bins are placed, emptied and maintained free of charge. Apparel Impact is a Mainer-founded organization that is owned by, and employs, veterans throughout New England. Materials recovered from the drop-off sites are donated to those in need. All the materials donated stay in New England, and what can’t be used again is recycled so nothing ends up in the landfill!
This initiative diverts material and tonnage from the waste stream, saving space in your landfill, and saving on hauling material to costly processors. It’s good for the environment, and good for your bottom line.
KVCOG’s initiative with Apparel Impact will add 12 new collection bins in 9 new communities throughout the KVCOG region! With these new additions there will now be approximately 20-24 total bins throughout 16 different municipalities in the KVCOG region.
These new bins will begin to be placed in communities in the KVCOG region in the summer of 2020!
Want to donate or recycle your textiles? Check out our map of collection locations!
