Waste Management Division Announces Grants for Waste Tire Program

recycle tire 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (7/26/13) – Kentucky counties can now apply for $3,000 in waste tire recycling and removal grants from money that is available through the Energy and Environment Cabinet’s Division of Waste Management (DWM) Waste Tire Trust Fund.
 
“Eligible expenses under this grant are the actual costs that the county incurs during the grant period for recycling or disposal of waste tires,” said Gary Logsdon, manager of DWM’s Recycling and Local Assistance Branch. “Other expenses, such as labor and equipment costs, are not eligible.”
 
Eligibility for the 2013–2014 funds requires the state-approved closure of the 2012-2013 waste tire grant.
 
The grant period is July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. Costs incurred by a county beginning July 1, 2013 are eligible for recycling or disposal of waste tires, even prior to the signing of the 2013-2014 grant agreement, if the county submits receipts for those costs when it sends in its close-out report form by July 15, 2014.
 
The waste tire grant does not require a match but counties must submit grant applications no later than Aug. 30, 2013 as an eligibility factor. Once signed, the counties will have until July 15, 2014 to demonstrate accountability by submitting the proper expenditure receipts and reports for the grant money. Any unused funds must be returned to the Kentucky State Treasurer.
 
The grant packets are being sent by email to county judge-executives and solid waste coordinators.
