Scrap Tires in Region 7
All states in Region 7 ban whole tires from disposal in landfills and have enacted rules and regulations to ensure the proper management of scrap tires. The Iowa Waste Tire End Users Incentives Program provides up to $10 per ton to end users of processed waste tire products to increase end uses/markets for processed waste tire materials including the purchase of tire derived fuel, crumb rubber, or shredded tires for civil engineering uses. Nebraska and Missouri also provide grants to users of scrap tires and tire derived products. The state of Kansas provides funds for the development of waste tire recycling markets.
