Waste Tire Hauler Program

A business or person who transports waste tires or materials derived from waste tires over the highways of the State and more specifically in Clark County, Nevada is required to obtain a waste tire hauler permit from the Solid Waste Management Authority.

What is considered a waste tire?2018-10-02T13:07:14-07:00

Per the Solid Waste Management Authority Regulations, a “waste tire” means a tire that is not fit for use as a tire. For example, if a vehicle has a tire replaced at an automotive maintenance facility, the tire that is removed would be considered a waste tire as the automotive facility has deemed that the tire is no longer fit or safe for continued use.
