Kansas Ag Connection - 06/12/2018
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment's (KDHE) Bureau of Waste Management has announced the recipients of waste tire recycling grants. These annual solid waste grants are awarded to municipalities and school districts across the state. The
grants total nearly $468,000 for 2018.
The waste tire recycling grants go toward funding safe surfacing at playgrounds, running tracks, picnic tables and benches made from waste tires. This year's 51 individual waste tire recycling grants range from $209 to $61,213.50. The grants are funded through
a 25-cent tax paid on the purchase of new tires. The list of grantees can be found at www.kdheks.gov/waste/grants/SFY18WTGSpreadsheetFinal.pdf.
