ROCK HILL, S.C. — PalmettoPride has recognized Winthrop University once again for its commitment to recycling by awarding the institution a community pride grant for the third consecutive year.PalmettoPride, a South Carolina non-profit organization, is committed to reducing litter and encouraging beautification efforts in the state.

The grant, worth $5,000, will fund outdoor recycling containers at the Winthrop University Lake Area, Recreational and Research Complex, commonly known as the Farm, located one mile from main campus.

The competitive grant is awarded to help organizations develop successful anti-litter programs and beautification activities. To be eligible, Winthrop had to have at least one litter cleanup planned, participate in the Great American Cleanup and turn in cleanup results.

In past years, Winthrop used the grant funds to purchase additional outdoor recycling containers on its main campus.
