Requirements for Used or Scrap Tire Storage

You must register with the TCEQ if your used or scrap tire storage site stores more than 500 used or scrap tires on the ground, or more than 2,000 in enclosed and lockable containers.

 

General Requirements

Your storage site is required to register, provide financial assurance for closure costs, and provide notice to the general public, if you store more than 500 used or scrap tires on the ground, or more than 2000 in enclosed and lockable containers. This is true for weight equivalents of tire pieces or any combination thereof.

Before you begin storage activities, the TCEQ must approve your registration, valid for 60 months from the date of issuance. 

Submit annual reports to the TCEQ on your site's scrap tire management activities, including the quantities of tires or tire pieces brought to or removed from the facility, and the delivery point and end-use.

To renew your registration, submit a renewal application at least 60 days before the registration expires.
