Alcorn County receives waste tire grant funds

By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – Alcorn County will continue collecting waste tires at the solid waste transfer station in Corinth with ongoing grant support from the state Department of Environmental Quality.
MDEQ announced Tuesday that it again has awarded Alcorn County a $32,000 waste tire grant for its tire collection program.
The grants are awarded to counties for small-quantity collection from a fee charged on the wholesale cost of every new motor vehicle tire sold in Mississippi to encourage proper disposal of waste tires in the state.
