Waste Reduction, Public Education, & Grants

BWM administers grant programs related to waste tire products, CRTs and green schools.

Waste Tire Grants

Through these grants, the KDHE intends to stimulate the production and sale of commercial products including playground cover made from recycled Kansas waste tires. These efforts benefit waste reduction by removing material from the waste stream to conserve landfill space and reduce the need for new solid waste facilities.

Local units of government and school districts are eligible to apply for funding which will provide up to 50% of the total cost to purchase and install eligible products made from waste tires.
