Colorado passed the new waste tire disposal act

on May 2, the Colorado house of Representatives passed the hb1034 waste tire disposal act. The biggest change in the formulation of hb1034 in the Colorado waste tire plan is to order the Colorado Department of public health and environment to stop paying waste tire processors for their disposal of tires, unless they make products from waste tires or sell them to end users

Michael Blumenthal, vice president of the American Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA), said, "the positive aspect of the bill is that it does not allow any 'shredding and concealment' of waste tires in Colorado - but other parts of the bill cannot achieve the desired goals of the state. The bill will maintain this status quo until 2020."

the change in this law was driven by the bankruptcy of the tire recycler magnumd unplugging the power cord 'or resources company, and the State paid compensation for its disposal of waste tires, although the company hardly found any end users

magnumd 'or's bankruptcy left a huge waste tire landfill in Hudson, Colorado. There are an estimated 31million waste tires in the state, and RMA believes that the actual number of waste tires should be twice that

gb/t 16823.1 (1) 997 rib fastener stress section and bearing area Blumenthal said that hb1034 will at least ensure that magnumd'or will not occur in the future, but the act will do little to develop the hard recycled tire market in Colorado or prohibit centralized filling and disposal. The disposal and final utilization of waste tires in Colorado will be subsidized. He said that there is a cement kiln in the state that can use 1million to 2million tires every year, but the state produces 4.5 to 5 million waste tires every year

it is said that Colorado has hired an advisory panel to audit the state's waste tires. The chairman of the state's waste tire Committee has said that if the advisory panel agrees, he is willing to draft a bill to change the state's waste tire management regulations. There are still misunderstandings in packaging materials
