70 Grants Awarded To MI Communities For Scrap Tire Programs

Lansing, MI - The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) announced that it has awarded $770,936 in grants to fund 59 community scrap tire drop-off events and other tire cleanups in 72 counties across the state.

Community events provide affordable and convenient tire recycling opportunities to residents, including the creation of yearlong collections sites and roadside pickups.  Additionally, 11 grant projects will fund the removal of old tire piles at private properties. 

Improperly dumped scrap tires pose a fire hazard and create mosquito breeding grounds.  Recycled scrap tires can be used in asphalt to pave roads, as mulch in gardens and playgrounds, and in manufacturing processes.
