State Providing Grants to Deal with Waste Tires

FRANKFORT, Ky. - The state is making $3,000 grants available for counties to help with the cost of recycling or disposing of waste tires.

The money would come from the Division of Waste Management's Waste Tire Trust Fund.

Gary Logsdon, who oversees the program for the state agency, said the grants are for costs other than labor and equipment. Applications have to be submitted by Aug. 30.

Kentucky has made strides over the decades to dispose of waste tires. The grant offering shows that work remains on that front.
