Now Open - Scrap Tire Surface Material Grants Cycles

During the 2014 legislative session, the Missouri General Assembly renewed the 50-cent scrap tire fee collected on the sale of new tires. Revenues generated from the scrap tire fee are deposited into the Scrap Tire Subaccount of the Solid Waste Fund. These funds are then made available as follows:

  • Up to 50 percent for enforcement, permitting and inspection
  • Up to 45 percent for grants
  • Up to 5 percent for education
