PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. (Jan. 22) — The Tire Retread Information Bureau won a $75,000 grant from the California Integrated Waste Management Board to promote retreads to public sector fleets.
The grant´s time frame is about 15 months, TRIB Managing Director Harvey Brodsky said. Specifically, TRIB plans to produce DVDs, CDs and written materials about retreading and proper tire maintenance that will be distributed to every public sector fleet in California. The Pacific Grove-based association also will conduct surveys and host tire maintenance/retreading workshops in about 40 locations in the state.
TRIB said it will welcome its California members who are interested to participate in the workshops.
