Scrap Tires

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.
