ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C.-- A grant from NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources provided the county with $40,000 to have contractors demolish abandoned or otherwise unusable manufactured homes.
The contractor gets to keep and profit on any material in the home that is recyclable.
The county finds old mobile homes for the program by accepting applications from people who need help getting rid of an old home.
The money from the grant should cover about 25 homes and be completed by the end of the summer.
Alamance County Planning Director Jason Martin says the county will be applying for the grant yearly.
