Waste Management

Scrap Tires Program

The North Carolina Division of Waste Management administers a comprehensive program to manage scrap tires. This program prevents illegal dumping of tires by providing an infrastructure to safely collect, store, and recycle scrap tires. An advance disposal fee is charged when new tires are sold. The proceeds are distributed to each county to pay for collection and recycling of tires. Counties do not charge disposal fees for tires generated in North Carolina. Each load of more than five tires must be accompanied by a completed scrap tire certification form.

Because of reductions in funding per Session Law 2013-360, the Appropriations Act of 2013, the Division of Waste Management has scaled down the cost overrun grant amounts awarded to the county scrap tire programs. Continuing decreases to cost overrun grants are anticipated in order to keep the tire fund solvent.

 Counties are advised to make whatever adjustments are needed to their budgets to account for these measures. All other provisions of the scrap tire law (G.S. 130A-309.51 through G.S. 130A-309-64) and the regulations (15A NCAC 13B .1100) remain unchanged. Counties will continue to receive tire tax distributions from the Department of Revenue. Resources for clean ups of illegal tire dumps will continue to be available while funds last. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
