Scrap Tire Reimbursement Program
State Funds Now Available for Scrap Tire Amnesty Events and to Remove Tires Dumped on City and County Right-of-Ways
In an October press release The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) announced the availability of funding from the state Solid Waste Trust Fund (SWTF) to remove and recycle scrap tires dumped along city and county right-of-ways and to pay for scrap tire amnesty events.
Local governments and solid waste authorities can apply for funding, in the form of a reimbursement, to cover the cost of transporting and processing these tires. With this announcement, EPD adds two new eligibility categories for state-funded cleanup under a program that began last summer.
Applications for all three types of cleanups will be accepted on a rolling basis and awarded first come, first served, contingent on funding availability and demand.
