Warm, humid climate and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico produce turbulent weather patterns that regularly bring tornadoes and hurricanes to Montgomery, AL. As a result, each year the state's capital city must manage tons of construction waste and storm debris. Now, thanks to a $2.5 million Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) from the U.S. Department of Energy, Montgomery will revamp its landfill sorting efforts and retrofit its historical city.
