Kentucky Tire Recycling Grants Available

The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet is accepting grant proposals for projects that promote the use of recycled waste tires for athletic fields, playgrounds and other crumb rubber applications.

The cabinet will consider funding research and development proposals for experimental practices or technologies that further the statutory purposes of the waste tire program or that will help develop a market for Kentucky waste tires.
