East Arkansas Waste Tire District
Each solid waste management district is required to undertake programs to identify illegal tire dumping sites, and operate a waste tire disposal system. In order to meet this mandate, three of the districts in the area (Northeast, Mississippi County, and East Arkansas) created the East Arkansas Waste Tire District (EAWTD). EAPDD staff provides the management support to operate this program, which covers 11 of the 12 EAPDD counties. The map displays the locations of county collection centers and the disposal/processing facility.
The EAWTD is responsible for the abatement of all existing illegal tire dumps located within the District. All citations and legal action against violators are the responsibility of the Arkansas Department of Pollution Control & Ecology (ADPC&E).
The EAWTD is required to collect and dispose of fee paid tires within the 11 county service area at no charge.
Manifest forms are required to dispose of any tire in the EAWTD. The District provides the manifest forms, and only original copies will be accepted at the collection centers. Forms are available and can be picked up at any of the collection centers, or by calling the District office.
All tires brought to collection centers for which a fee has not been previously paid, based on tax reporting forms provided to the Arkansas Department of Finance & Administration (ADF&A), will be assessed a fee for disposal. Fees charged are as follows:
- Passenger Car and Light Truck tires: $1.75 each
- Semi-Truck tires: $5.00 each
- Large Farm Implement and Off-Road tires: $26.00 each
- Non Four Wheel Drive Front Tractor tires: $5.00 each
- Four Wheeler and Lawnmower tires: $1.75 each
