Tennessee Tire Dealers

Effective October 01, 2007
Public Chapter 602 increases the pre-disposal fee imposed on the sale of new tires from $1 to $1.35 per tire, which is the first increase since the fee was enacted in 1991. Proceeds from the tire pre-disposal fee are distributed to counties to help offset the expense of recycling and disposing of used tires. The bill also imposes a 50% penalty on dealers who under-report sales that are subject to this fee.

What can you do?

As a member of the Tennessee Tire Dealers Association, we ask that you be very aware of what is in the works with scrap tires and keep your eye on what is going on locally with your county.   If you see any changes made that make no sense or hear any rumors of change, please contact Brooks Harris at 615-330-8384.

Please get involved and communicate with us.  It is critical to the survival of a solid waste tire program where all tires are recycled properly.

If you should have any questions concerning the scrap tire issue, please contact Brooks Harris at 615-330-8384.
