Waste Tire Recycling Incentives Grant Program

Recycling Symbol and Globe
 
 
*Announcement: Due to House Bill 14-1352 ("Concerning the Management of Waste Tires"), an applicaiton for grant projects for Fiscal Year 2015 (July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015) will be delayed until the department is notified what funding, if any, will be available.  Please continue to check the website for updates.

 

The Colorado General Assembly passed legislation in 2010 (HB 10-1018), C.R.S. 25-17-202.6, concerning tire recycling and re-use programs. Specifically, the legislation provides incentives for state agencies and local governments to purchase products made from recycled or reused waste tire material in their public projects.

The purpose of this program is to encourage the beneficial reuse and recycling of Colorado waste tires. The legislation authorizes funds be made available to counties, municipalities, special districts (including school districts), and state agencies, as a financial incentive to purchase products containing recycled or reused Colorado waste tires on a reimbursement basis.
