DNREC public hearing on proposed modifications
to state’s scrap tire regulations set for Monday, April 25
DOVER (April 20, 2016) – DNREC’s Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Section will hold a public hearing Monday, April 25 for comment on proposed modifications to Section 12 of Delaware’s Regulations Governing Solid Waste. Current regulations require all businesses operating a scrap tire facility to obtain a permit, and includes payment of an annual permit fee. The public hearing will start at 6 p.m. in the DNREC Auditorium inside the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
The proposed amendments for the Scrap Tire Management Program would allow businesses whose only storage of scrap tires is in fully-enclosed trailers to operate without a permit – provided that certain criteria, including notifying DNREC of their scrap tire storage space, are met and maintained to ensure protection of human health and the environment.
Additionally, the proposed amendments will make corrections to and better clarify the current scrap tire management regulations. The proposed amendments can be found on the DNREC website at http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/Info/Pages/Rules.aspx
The public may also view the proposed amendments Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at DNREC’s main offices located at 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
To make an appointment to review the amendments, to register for handout materials at the April 25 public hearing, or for additional information about scrap tire management in Delaware, please contact Andy Martin, DNREC Solid & Hazardous Waste Management Section, 302-739-9403, Option 8.
