  • Waste Tire Electronic Manifesting System
  • Electronic Manifesting
    Electronic or E-Manifesting of Tires will:
    Help track tire generators
    Reduce expenditures
    Improve information at point of collection
    Shorten reimbursement turn around
  • E-Manifesting
    Currently 5 counties have direct access
    All 95 counties are being entered in system
    By 2011, next tier counties will be able to access
    Reduces paper work and postal costs
    Generator management
  • E-Manifest
  • Old Closed Landfill Mitigation Assistance
    The Grant Program
  • Legacy Or Old Closed Landfills
    123 Currently Closed Landfills
    115 Pre-1998 Closed Landfills
  • Old Closed Landfills
    Sixty-four (64) pre-1998 closed landfills are without groundwater monitoring systems.
    Seventeen (17) have had groundwater use surveys completed
  • OCL Grants
    • Four Old Closed Landfills have been identified and offered a grant for funding to provide water to impacted communities, add ground water monitoring, or repair the cap.
