Tire Stewardship BC (TSBC), the association responsible for managing the provincial scrap tire-recycling program, is accepting applications for its third annual Community Grant Program.

The program provides matching funds, up to a maximum of $20,000, for B.C. not-for-profit organizations, schools and municipalities that use B.C. recycled rubber in their projects. The closing date for applications is April 29.

To learn more about tire recycling in B.C., or to find out if your project qualifies for TSBC’s grant funding, visit www.tsbc.ca and go to the News Corner section.
