Summary: The Waste Tire Management and Recycling Act of 2003 was enacted to ensure the proper management of waste tires in NY State. This Law established a waste tire management and recycling fee per new tire sold to be deposited in a Waste Tire Management and Recycling Fund, and required the NY State Dept of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) to prepare a comprehensive plan to abate all noncompliant waste tire stockpiles in the state. Landfilling of waste tires is prohibited unless NYSDEC determines that it is not feasible to convert the waste tires to a beneficial use. Tire service centers must accept from customers used tires of an equivalent size and quantity of new tires purchased or installed.
NYSDEC also regulates waste tire storage facilities and waste tire processing facilities.
