Oregon Waste Tire Carrier Bond - $5,000
Oregon laws define waste tire as those that are no longer usable for their primary purpose due to use, defect, or damages. In the state, only about one-third of the four million waste tires accumulated are recovered. This presents severe environmental hazards like the accumulation of rainwater in unused tires that can potentially cause diseases. There is also the long decomposition of the tires that may add to the existing environmental concerns on waste management.
The state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is the agency responsible for setting the environmental standards relating to waste tire disposal. The agency sets these parameters through ORS 459.705.
What is the Oregon Waste Tire Carrier Bond?
The Oregon Waste Tire Carrier Bond will ensure that a surety bond company will pay for the needed compensation in the case a company violates a licensing provision with the grounds stated on the bond form. Aside from paying for the needed compensation, the surety bond company will also be responsible for reviewing claims from the public to check for its validity for compensation.
The Principal, or the business, however, is still responsible for the financial loss that the Surety Bond Company will face in the case of the former being sued. The former will be required to compensate the latter for any type of payments were made as long as it is within the grounds of the bond. If the Principal fails to do so, their license may be suspended. The state imposes a total bond amount of $5,000 for this type of bond.
