Tire cleanup grants available from ODNR
COLUMBUS– Ohio communities, schools and businesses are encouraged to apply for the 2010 Tire Amnesty Grant program which supports targeted scrap tire collection drives, drop-off efforts and local tire clean-ups.
The program provides assistance to local governments, businesses, schools, health districts and other non-profit entities to establish tire amnesty activities.
Tire amnesty collections allow residents to bring a limited number of tires to a drop-off site free of charge. Collected tires must be used as feedstock for a viable and technologically proven end-use market. Acceptable scrap tires include passenger, light truck, semi-truck and agricultural tires.
The 2010 application form and all grant program criteria are at ohiodnr.com/recycling. The deadline to apply is April 5, 2010.
