Tire Storage & Recovery Facilities

Scrap tires are unwanted or discarded tires that are not on a vehicle. Abandoned scrap tires are considered a public health nuisance because they become ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes, pose a potential fire risk, and create unsightly nuisances in our environment. Ideally, scrap tires are stored in covered containers or inside buildings until they can be transported to a tire recovery/disposal facility by a registered tire transporter.

 

Inspections

Many automobile-related retail facilities generate scrap tires as a result of their business. These facilities are randomly inspected for:

  • compliance with operational criteria
  • scrap tire management
  • maximum storage area
  • pile size
  • fire contingency plans on site
  • mosquito/vector control
  • daily logs (recovery facility only)
  • shipping paper system
  • validity of licensure

 

Types of Facilities

Class I Scrap Tire Recovery Facility – A scrap tire recovery facility with a permitted daily design input capacity of 200 tons of scrap tires per day or greater.

Class II Scrap Tire Recovery Facility – A scrap tire recovery facility with a registered daily design input capacity of less than 200 tons of scrap tires per day.

Scrap Tire Storage Facility – Any facility where whole scrap tires are stored prior to being transported to another destination (final storage or disposal).

Class I Storage Facility – Permitted capacity of more than 10,000 square feet of effective scrap tire storage no greater than three acres.

Class II Storage Facility – Registered capacity of not greater than 10,000 square feet of effective scrap tire storage.
