Scrap Tire Beneficial Reuse Project Requirements Guidance
Persons in Georgia who want to use more than 25 scrap tires in a beneficial reuse project must complete and
submit a Scrap Tire Beneficial Reuse Project Application to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. The
information outlined in this guidance document should be followed in preparing the application. The items listed
below are the minimum requirements for inclusion in the application. Additional information may be required
depending upon the specific facility, location, topography, and project proposal.
I.
Applicant Information. Please complete as requested.
II.
Business Information. If the applicant is not the owner of the property, please provide a letter from
the property owner (including the owner’s name, mailing address, and telephone number) stating that
the property owner is aware of the proposed project and grants consent. The property owner will be
copied on the approval letter issued by EPD. A written project proposal should be attached to the
application and include the following:
1. Use. Narrative stating what the tires will be used for and the number of tires needed for the
project. If the tires will be used in a manner that may pose a stability problem that could
endanger lives, the reviewer may require that a professional engineer review the project design
and certify that the design is stable. The reviewer may also require that a professional engineer
review and certify the construction of the project.
2. Plan Detail. A typical detail showing how the tires will be used and a sketch showing where the
tires will be placed. Location of nearby streams, drainage features, and storm drains on or
adjacent to the property should be included. Location of property lines should be included.
3. Mosquito and fire control. Narrative describing how the applicant will provide mosquito and
fire control.
4. Generator. Source of the tires, if known. The scrap tire generator(s) will be copied on the
approval letter, if known.
5. Schedule. Proposed project start/completion dates.
6. Location. Map and/or driving directions from a prominent local point (e.g., courthouse) to the
proposed site.
7. Certification of Zoning. A copy of a letter from the appropriate local zoning authority that
states the property to be used for the beneficial reuse project is properly zoned for this purpose.
If the project is proposed in a city or county where there is no zoning, the applicant must provide
a letter from the appropriate local government agency stating that there is no zoning, the agency
is aware of the proposed project, and the agency has no objection to EPD approval of the
proposed project. The local government agency will receive a copy of the approval letter.
8. Other. Information as may be needed on a case-by-case basis (e.g., If tires are proposed for use
in construction of a firing range, it would be important to know if there are any homes, schools,
or businesses nearby that might be endangered by a ricocheting bullet. Or, a copy of a letter from
the local government authority indicating compliance with local requirements relative to erosion
and sedimentation control for the project).
