The South Dakota Board of Water and Natural Resources has approved a $650,000 grant to fund waste tire collections and other solid waste cleanups.
To support the state’s strategy against the Zika virus, some of the funds will be used for waste tire collections at the state’s regional landfills, and the rest of the funds will be used to help state school districts clean up and dispose of chemicals from school labs.
