Description: The management of scrap tires, a form of municipal solid waste, is handled primarily at the state level. Figures from the Scrap Tire Management Council show that on average, over 270 million scrap tires are generated each year. The Transportation, Recall, Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act provides that in the case of a remedy involving replacement of tires, the manufacturer shall, to the extent possible, prevent replaced tires from being resold, and limit the disposal of replaced tires in landfills. Replaced tires would go instead to recycling, recovery, beneficial use, and incineration with energy recovery, where possible.
