2022 Scrap Tire Cleanup Grant APPLICATIONSContact: Kirsten Clemens EGLE-ScrapTire@Michigan.govAgency: Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy
**DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 28, 2022**
Section 16908(2)(c) of Part 169, Scrap Tires, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (NREPA), requires that the Scrap Tire Regulatory Fund shall be used: For the cleanup or collection of abandoned scrap tires and scrap tires at collection sites. The department shall give priority to funding activities under this subdivision at collection sites in which the scrap tires were accumulated prior to January 1, 1991, and to collection sites that pose an imminent threat to public health, safety, welfare, or the environment. The department shall make every effort to assure that all abandoned scrap tires accumulated at collection sites prior to January 1, 1991, are cleaned up or collected by September 31 [sic], 2009.
Due to decreased end use market availability, a temporary suspension of the requirement that processors deliver all grant tires to an end user will be in place for the FY20 cleanup grant round. All scrap tires must continue to be handled according to Part 169, however disposal at a Part 115 licensed landfill in accordance with Part 115 will be an acceptable method for a processor to handle the incoming scrap tires under the grant.
Any grantee/contractor wishing to deliver scrap tires to a landfill, after proper size reduction, must contact the Scrap Tire Program grant administrator for approval. Whole motor vehicle tires are prohibited from being disposed of in a landfill.
