Georgia Tire Carrier BondThe improper management of scrap tires has caused a great strain on the environment. Over a billion scrap tires rest in various stockpiles due to illegal dumping. This can be a catalyst for different problems such as fire and mosquito-related illnesses.

It will serve as a guarantee to the Environmental Protection Division of Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources that the tire carrier will perform his or her duties according to the provisions of the Georgia Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Act such as:

  • Recycling, chopping, and shredding of scrap tires in an environment-friendly manner before disposal
  • Submit a report to the Environmental Protection Division the number of scrap tires disposed of and the manner in which they were disposed
  • Storing 100 or fewer scrap tires within Georgia

However, the bond amount will not be less than $10,000, or more than $20,000.
