Some waste tire generators deliver their waste tires to a recycling or disposal facility while others rely on the services of a waste tire hauler. Such service providers, i.e., waste tire haulers, may "cull" the tires (removing good tires for resale) before delivering them to a waste tire processor.
DEQ utilizes a voluntary hauler registration system whereby haulers can receive a hauler registration number from the agency provided they:
1. Satisfactorily pass a DEQ records check;
2. Have a local business license;
3. Have a viable destination for the waste tires; and
4. Have a valid tax ID/FIN #.
Registered waste tire haulers are asked to develop and to utilize a tracking form similar to DEQ's previously distributed Waste Tire Certification forms to better track the flow of waste tires from Virginia generators. This tracking form (sometimes called a manifest form) provides documentation to the generator that the tires were picked up by a reputable hauler registered with DEQ, and also provides the processor with documentation on the generation point for the waste tires (Virginia or non-Virginia site).
Waste tire haulers may not store tires on any public or private property (including their own), and must deliver the collected tires directly to a processor or licensed disposal point.
Note: DEQ does not endorse any of these businesses nor can it ensure their handling of waste tires is in compliance with all applicable environmental laws, regulations and permits. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that his waste tires are handled properly.
