The Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District awarded $33,208 to 19 political subdivisions in Geauga County to implement localized scrap tire collection programs.
The purpose of the scrap tire grant program is to financially assist communities in offering scrap tire collections such as day programs, curbside or picking up tires dumped illegally on the roadside.
“Finding ways to improve and make the process easier for residents to properly dispose of scrap tires in a more convenient manner is the goal of the district,” said district administrator Lisa Smith. “This eliminates travel to a centralized location point. Now residents do not have to drive outside of the specific community they live in to properly dispose of scrap tires.”
Funds are available to all communities in Geauga County. Those interested in scrap tire cleanups should visit www.gottagogreen.org for dates, times and locations of programs.
