Georgia Waste Tire Haulers, also known as Scrap and Used Tire Carriers, transport used or scrap tires to recyclers, processors, sorters or other disposers. They must comply with the rules and regulations of the EPD (Environmental Protection Division). Haulers must have a tire carrier permit and display a decal on their vehicles, including trailers that provides proof that they can legitimately haul and dispose of used tires.
Applicants for waste tire haulers or scrap and used tire carriers must complete the state permit application and disclose the EPF-approved facilities to be used for the processing, disposal or end use of the scrap tires.
Applicants are required to obtain a surety bond that is dependent on the number of tires transported each month. Suerty bonds amounts range between $10,000 and $20,000. Carriers transporting or hauling up to 5,000 scrap tires per month require a $10,000 surety bond. Carriers transporting or hauling more than 5,000 scrap tires per month require a $20,000 surety bond.
Instead of a bond, a letter of credit from an approved financial institution may be placed on file with the state.
Submit the completed permit application and original surety bond to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, Waste Reduction Unit.
The premium that you pay for a Georgia Scrap and Used Tire Carrier or Waste Tire Hauler Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount needed.
