To help state and local governments reduce the economic burdens and environmental risks associated with scrap tire piles on their landscapes, US EPA Region 5 and Illinois EPA collaborated to create the Scrap Tire Cleanup Guidebook.

The guidebook brings together the experience of dozens of professionals in one resource designed to provide state and local officials with the information needed to effectively clean up scrap tire piles.

The guidebook discusses starting a cleanup program, working with contractors to clean up sites, and implementing prevention programs that will reduce scrap tire dumping.
