New Surety Bond Requirements for California Waste Tire Haulers

The California Uniform Waste and Used Tire Manifest System has determined that waste tire haulers, generators and other end-use facilities will need to get valid permits and surety bonds when transporting tires.  A waste tire hauler is anyone who transports waste tires or materials using the California Highway.  Waste tires are deemed unsafe to use.  Therefore, these tires are brought to recycling facilities or specialty waste disposal points.

Waste tire hauler surety bonds also go by the name “scrap tire hauler bonds”. This is mostly in the case of waste tire haulers who operate as a commercial business. These bonds specify that all tires be transported directly to a licensed facility. These facilities must store, dispose or use tires in a safe manner. This is done to protect the public’s health and comply with the safety of the environment.

The bond also guarantees that the waste tire hauler adheres to all local and state laws. A few things the surety bond protects against are:

Transportation to an unauthorized facility

  1. Conducting business without registration
  2. Use an unlicensed vehicle to transport the waste tires.

To be licensed, the first step is to be approved for a surety bond. Afterwards, one must register with the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.  Let us help you with the first step of becoming a legitimate waste tire hauler business.
