Trying to dispose of those waste and scrap tires yourself can be difficult and dangerous. If a pile of tires catches on fire it can be difficult to put out and can release chemicals and toxins into the air. Tire dumps can also cause issues by becoming breeding grounds for vermin and mosquitoes, which carry disease. Avoid these situations by contacting Kentuckiana Tire Recycling to arrange the pick up of your scrap tires. Give us a call at 502-822-3809.

It has applied for another grant to buy a tire shredder. The shredded tires could be used as a daily landfill cover, required by law, Austin said. Now the authority sprays a type of mulch or sand, he said.

On October 21, 2015, City Council unanimously approved the Scrap Tire Ordinance due to an immediate need to alleviate the environmental dangers posed by the numerous illegal tire piles within Houston. Reducing and eliminating the illegal dumping of tires will positively affect neighborhoods and city services. The ordinance became effective January 1, 2016.

The Scrap Tire Ordinance is in the City of Houston Code of Ordinances, Chapter 39, Article VIII relating to Storage, Transportation and Disposal of Tires. All businesses that are involved in the used/scrap tire business will be required to register and/or obtain a permit annually with the City of Houston.

  • Scrap tires exposed to the elements can:Provide good living conditions for mosquitoes that can spread diseases such as Encephalitis, West Nile Virus and Zika Virus.

  • Provide breeding grounds for rats, snakes, ticks and other vectors.

  • Become a fire hazard since tire fires are difficult to extinguish.

  • Could release dangerous contaminants into the air, water and soil.

How You Can Help Reduce Scrap Tire Problems

  • Properly maintain tires! This extends wear and increases the chance that your tires can be retreaded. Some helpful tips are:Keep tires inflated at the recommended inflation level. Under inflation can waste up to 5% of a car's fuel.

  • Repair punctures, maintain alignment, and rotate tires every 6,000 - 8,000 miles.

If you have a tire swing or dock tire bumpers, puncture holes in the tires so they won't hold water. This will help deter mosquito breeding grounds and prevent water accumulation in tires.

A. The purchase of a tire for resale is considered a wholesale sale, which is not subject to the scrap tire fee. In those situations where a service provider has purchased tires at retail and paid the fee, the scrap tire should not be charged to the consumer of such services.

However if a motor vehicle dealer, motor vehicle serviceperson, auto body repair shop, etc. purchases tires at retail or wholesale and did not pay the scrap tire fee, they must register as a scrap tire retailer. In addition they must pay the $2.00 scrap tire fee on tires that are installed on motor vehicles as part of the sale of the automobile or the service of such automobile. They are permitted to list the scrap tire fee as a separate item on the invoice.

A. If the equipment is not registered by a State Motor Vehicle Agency for highway use the tires sold for the equipment are not subject to the fee. However, tires sold for trailers that haul the equipment would be subject to the fee, see next the question.

A. Only tires sold at retail to vehicles that are tagged by a State Motor Vehicle Agency for highway use are required to pay the fee. Therefore, if the farm equipment is not tagged tires sold for the equipment are exempt.

A. No, this fee is strictly for cleaning up existing scrap tires piles that meet the definition in 7Del.C 6040. You are still responsible for proper management of the scrap tires generated by your business.

A. No fee is collected if there is a trade, only when a tire is sold at retail. However, if a customer wishes to upgrade their tires instead of doing an equal trade and there is a cost involved the fee must be collected.

A. The disposal fee is a cost to dispose of the tire that is being replaced. The Scrap Tire Fee is a fee to pay for the cleanup of old scrap tire piles that currently exist and require environmental cleanup.

A. The scrap tire fee is assessed against the retailer on the sales of retail tires and not the purchaser. However, the retailer may increase the cost of the tire and separately report the scrap tire fee on the retail invoice. In addition, by statute, sales to government agencies and businesses that are required to obtain a Delaware business license are deemed to be wholesale sales and wholesale sales are not subject to the assessment of the scrap tire fee. However, the business is responsible for having the appropriate license and properly reporting the sale as either wholesale or retail. Accordingly, all retail sales of tires are subject to the $2 fee, irrespective of who is the customer.

A. An accumulation of 100 or more scrap tires, whether or not they are lying one upon Another, that have been accumulated or located in the same general vicinity, or accumulated or located on a parcel of real property and is not enclosed by a building. The program will only apply to scrap tire pile in existence in Delaware on June 30, 2006.

A. It is imperative that the scrap tire piles are cleaned up properly. Scrap tire piles are huge fire hazards and are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, which can carry the West Nile Virus and cause other severe human health concerns. Many other states have been successful using a fee to clean up their scrap tire piles.

A. DNREC will contract for companies to clean up the scrap tire piles. Based on current inventory the rough estimate is there are two to three million scrap tires in existing scrap tire piles throughout the State and that it will cost approximately $2 per tire to clean up each pile. The fund is expected to generate about $850,000 annually.

A. Both DNREC and the Division of Revenue have been working to identify businesses that sell tires at retail and made notification of the licensing and fee collection requirements through the annual business license renewal notice pertaining.

Over the past decade, consumption of scrap tires has not kept pace as scrap tire generation has increased. In 2013, about 96 percent of scrap tires generated were consumed by end markets, but in 2015, that figure decreased to 88 percent, and in 2017, that figure was down to 81 percent.

Generation is increasing faster than the markets that are able to accept that, and what we need is more recycling markets that can accept scrap tires that are being generated," says John Sheerin, director of end-of-life tire programs at USTMA.

Scrap tire consumption has been declining in the TDF end market for the past decade, though. Consumption of scrap tires decreased 15 percent in this end market between 2019 and 2021, according to USTMA.

In 2021, ground rubber took over as the largest end market for scrap tires. According to the 2021 Scrap Tire Management Report, ground rubber market increased by 29 percent in 2021 compared with 2019, and the market consumed about 28 percent of all scrap tires.

In the ground rubber end market, the use of scrap tires for molded and extruded products, such as rubber mats and flooring, increased use by 25 percent in 2021 compared with 2019, consuming 485,000 tons of scrap tires.

Rubber mulch increased use by 54 percent in 2021 compared with 2019, consuming 391,000 tons of scrap tires. USTMA estimates that home improvement activities during COVID-19-related shutdowns helped to increase use in this area.

Rubber-modified asphalt consumed slightly fewer scrap tires in 2021 compared with 2019, consuming 141,000 tons of scrap tires that year. Additionally, fine ground rubber consumed 79,000 tons of scrap tires in 2021.

USTMA says several other end markets reported increased consumption of scrap tires in its latest report. In 2021, civil engineering applications consumed about 6 percent of all scrap tires primarily for tire-derived aggregate.

Additionally, USTMA reports that the amount of illegally stockpiled scrap tires is down to about 50 million across the U.S. as of 2021. USTMA says it estimates more than 1 billion scrap tires were illegally stockpiled in 1990. There were about 56 million stockpiled scrap tires in the U.S. in 2019.

Scrap tires are used in playgrounds, as swings, as planters, and for similar benign applications. Other uses of whole scrap tires, particularly large quantities, are generally not allowed. If you have an idea for a beneficial use of whole scrap tires, please contact the Solid Waste Management Program first.

Retailers remit those fee collections to the state, and in exchange, may dispose of scrap tires at licensed facilities. (Individuals may dispose of up to four tires a month at state-permitted facilities free of charge.)

Douglass, though, also cited the economic costs of stopping the waste tire industry in its tracks. Not only does it cut off revenue for tire recycling plants, it also stops the work of companies that transport the tires from retail lots to the rubber facilities.
