The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection’s Division of Waste Management (DWM) has awarded $408,000 in Waste Tire Grants to 102 state counties. The counties will receive $4,000 each to help curb waste tire problems in between state-funded Waste Tire Collection Events in their areas.
These grants are funded through the Energy and Environment Cabinet’s Division of Waste Management Waste Tire Fund. “All counties were encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity to remove waste tires from their communities. Eligible expenses under this grant are the actual costs that the county incurs during the grant period for recycling or disposal of waste tires,” says Gary Logsdon, Manager of DWM’s Recycling and Local Assistance Branch. “Other expenses, such as labor and equipment costs, are not eligible.”
