kysealFRANKFORT, Ky. (2/13/16) — The Energy and Environment Cabinet is accepting grant proposals for projects that promote the use of recycled waste tires for landscaping.

Grant funds may be used to purchase crumb rubber mulch for landscaping projects.

Grant funding comes from the Waste Tire Trust Fund, an endowment established in 1998 by the Kentucky General Assembly to receive fees collected from new tire sales. The applicant will provide match funding equal to at least 25 percent of the project cost.

To a limited degree, the cabinet will also consider funding research and development proposals for experimental practices or technologies that further the statutory purposes of the waste tire program - to protect human health, safety and the environment - or that will help develop a market for Kentucky waste tires.

Applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on March 28, 2016, at the Division of Waste Management's central office in Frankfort. The application and any supporting documentation must be submitted in order for the application to be considered. Applications can be mailed to Lisa Evans, Division of Waste Management, 200 Fair Oaks Lane, Frankfort, Ky. 40601.

For more information, phone Lisa Evans at (502) 564-6716 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Additional information and the grant application are online at the division's website:
