Scrap Tire Certification

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 the collection and recycling of tires. 
Residents can bring up to 5 tires a day to our landfill (free of charge).  Rims must be removed.
Businesses can bring tires for free under the certification program if state regulations are followed. For a review, click here.
