Frequent Questions

What type of data/information was gathered for the scrap tire inventory report?

The goal of the project was to collect the following information for each tire pile identified:

• Scrap tire pile site location
• Size
• Storage method
• Site access control
• Site status
• Authorized agency responsible for site
• Breakdown of passenger vs. truck tires
• Site owner
• Whether site is considered legal or illegal

Data on each of these topics was not always available. The parties believe that the release of the tire pile inventory report and map will serve as a catalyst to obtaining more information. For more information, see http://www.epa.gov/wastes/conserve/materials/tires/pubs/2012-tires.pdf
