Nevada Drops 225 Lbs. of Lead by Replacing Wheel Weights

April 08, 2010

CARSON CITY, NV - The State of Nevada Motor Pool Division was recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency's National Partnership for Environmental Priorities in March for successfully eliminating and recycling approximately 225 lbs. of lead wheel weights from its fleet operations.

The Division manages and maintains a fleet of 860 vehicles and operates three maintenance facilities. State agencies have access to vehicles in Carson City, Reno, and Las Vegas, with service and maintenance provided at all three facilities. Funding for the division is generated primarily from vehicle rental charges. The agency has been operational for 40 years. The goal of the agency is to provide transportation for state employees.

By switching to steel weights, the Division was able to achieve its goal.
