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 come to a total of nearly $458,000 for 2016.

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, ranging from $478.50 to $87,288 are distributed to recipients across the state. The grants are funded through a 25-cent tax paid on the purchase of new tires.
