If your business is a scrap tire carrier, generator, retreader, or new-tire retailer, take time to review the short but comprehensive lists of requirements that apply to you. You'll find these lists under the Technical Guidance section of the EPD Scrap Tire Program webpage. Applications for permits and registrations are also available for download or print under the Forms section of the same page.
Should you happen to store used tires, note that you are required to keep them dry and protected from fire hazards. It's important you heed these restrictions because tires left out in the rain become incubators for disease carrying mosquitoes. Housed safely in a scrap tire, these pests can breed 100 times faster than they do in nature. Also note that the EPD caps the number of tires you may store.
