The Indiana Administrative Code (329 IAC 15) sets guidelines for the proper handling, transporting, storage, and disposal of waste tires and waste tire facilities. Most individuals wishing to operate a waste tire storage facility or waste tire processing facility must first obtain a certificate of registration from IDEM. Anyone wishing to transport waste tires must also register with IDEM. Waste tire storage and processing facilities [PDF] are not allowed to accept waste tires unless the transporter is registered with IDEM [PDF].
The application fee for a new certificate of registration for a waste tire storage facility is $500 and the annual fee is also $500. The application fee for a renewal or new certificate of registration for a waste tire processing facility is $200. There is no annual fee for waste tire processing facilities. IDEM has thirty (30) days to process waste tire registration applications but they are usually processed within a week. All waste tire certificates of registration expire five (5) years after issuance and then must be renewed. Renewals must be submitted sixty (60) days prior to the expiration date of the certificate of registration.
However, the following do not need to register with IDEM:
To apply for registration for waste tire transporting, persons must submit an application along with a $25 registration fee. Registered transporters must dispose of any tires that are in their possession by appropriate means set out in 329 IAC 15. Waste tire transporters are also required to prepare and carry a Waste Tire Manifest Form (available on the IDEM Forms page) for all shipments of waste tires.
IDEM registrations for waste tire collection or processing businesses or storage facilities [PDF]s are not transferable (refer to the Indiana Administrative Code at 329 IAC 15-4-9 and 329 IAC 15-3-13). Any person taking ownership of such a business or facility must re-apply to IDEM to be properly registered prior to engaging in these activities.
