ODNR Community Development Grants

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark & Carroll Counties applied for a 2011 Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Community Development Grant (Division of Recycling & Litter Prevention).

The Division of Recycling & Litter Prevention's competitive grant funding is targeted at Ohio's local governments, colleges and universities, solid waste management districts/authorities, health districts, soil & water conservation districts and private sector businesses for a variety of recycling, litter clean up and scrap tire management projects. For more information on this grant program, check out the ODNR's website.

The Community Development Grant program provides financial assistance to Ohio’s local governments that propose to design and establish projects involved in the collection and processing of recyclable materials.

Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Scrap Tire Abatement Program

Ohio EPA's Division of Solid and Infectious Waste Management (DSIWM) manages Ohio's state-funded scrap tire abatement program. When Ohio EPA uses state funds to clean up a scrap tire site, it attempts to recover those costs from the property owner and/or the facility operator, as authorized by Ohio law in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 3734.38. ORC 3734.85(E) establishes criteria for cleanups of no more than 2,000 tires if several conditions are met without recovery.

Many cleanups are done with local or private (property owner) funding. Local governments and solid waste management districts manage scrap tire cleanups with local funding as they do other solid waste open dump cleanups. In addition to more than 39 million tires removed from 90 scrap tire sites by state funding, local funding and enforcement efforts have resulted in the removal of more than 11 million scrap tires from more than 169 sites.

If you know of a tire dump, please report its location to the local health department, an Ohio EPA district office or Ohio EPA's solid waste division at 877-372-2621 (toll-free).
