What are the laws concerning tractor trail tire sandboxes like in the ’60s? My neighbors have one and it seems to be leaking poison to the neighborhood.

There is no evidence that tires (leak) toxic substances into the ground as you’ve described,” said Mike Heideman, Kansas Department of Health and Environment spokesman. “Perhaps something inside the sandbox is causing this to occur, a toxic substance is being emanated from somewhere else, or some other problem is occurring.” Heideman said concerns should be reported to the state for investigation, by calling (785) 296-1500.
