Scrap Tires

Used tire piles present a number of environmental, health, and safety hazards to our communities. They are ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes. A tire fire started by arson or a lightning strike could take days, even weeks, to extinguish because burning rubber is extremely difficult to extinguish. The smoke from a tire fire contains hazardous gases and the oily liquid runoff from the melted tires can pollute ground water.

Reusing or recycling tires using different technology methods & procedures, keeps them out of landfills. Old or used tires can be shredded or turned into crumbs to be reused in additives to asphalt for roads and playgrounds. Pulverized tire chips can become rubber flooring for equestrian and dog training centers. The shredded rubber can also be burned at very high temperatures for energy sources with reduced air pollution.

DNREC: Division of Air & Waste Management

Delaware produces over 750,000 scrap tires a year. Since 2002 the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control of the State of Delaware has worked to establish a process of eliminating the state's scrap tire piles, and the Division of Air and Waste Management's Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Branch now has a program for the cleanup of used tire piles that were in existence before June 30, 2006 and comprising more than 100 tires.

State funds are now available to help defray the cost of cleanup and disposal for owners. You can call DNREC's Scrap Tire Control and Cleanup Program and let them know where your tire pile is located so they can work with you to properly dispose of the used tires.
