Scrap Tire Survey
The Michigan Municipal League is a member of the Scrap Tire Advisory Committee Meeting (STAC) that has been put together by the Solid Waste Management Unit of the DEQ. STAC has recently begun discussing potential amendments to the Scrap Tires section of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. As part of that discussion, there has been talk about more stringent requirements for scrap tires haulers such as registration fees, financial assurance requirements, fines, etc. It is thought that such changes could help save cities, townships, and counties money by cutting down on illegal dumping of scrap tires.
