Honoring Earth Day on April 22nd, the City of Canton MO will hold a formal opening of the newly resurfaced trail in Veterans Memorial Park at 1002 Brose Avenue on Wednesday, April 21st at 10 a.m.  The project was funded in part by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources by a Scrap Tire Materials Grant.  The program diverts scrap tires from landfills and illegal dumps by promoting end-uses for scrap tires.  The project at Veterans Memorial Park used 24,485 pounds of recycled rubber, 83% of which was produced using recycled tires.  100 percent of the recycled tires used in the project were from Missouri stock. 

The project provided for solid-surfacing 943 feet of trail to a width of five feet.  The full cost of the project was just under $50,000.  Of that amount, $44,085 was funded by the Scrap Tire Materials Grant with the balance being funded by the City of Canton.  The bid winner for the project was Taylormade Company of Kansas City KS.

Special guest for the opening will be Marla Greiner, Community Development Planner/Solid Waste Management District C Planner for the Northeast Missouri Regional Planning Commission.  The grant for this project aligns with the Department of Natural Resources Waste Management Program.  Grants through the Solid Waste Management District have provided for continued development of the Canton Recycling Center.
