Scrap Tire Program

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has announced that the scrap tire program application deadline is February 1, 2017. We urge any municipality or county to apply for this funding. Funding awards pay the hauler fees, project advertising, and some limited staff time during collection day. In the past, DEQ has suggested that a county-wide or multi-community project is looked upon more favorably then a single community application.

"Our residents were truly grateful to have the opportunity to get rid of all of their scrap tires using the scrap tire grant. The event was a tremendous success for Furnas County."
