HB 1114: Waste Tire Site Remediation

H.B. 1114, P.N. 1946 (YUDICHAK) This would amend the Act Relating to the Recycling and Reuse of Waste Tires, Act. 190 of 1996, P.L. 1478.
Only a person with a valid waste tire hauler authorization would be permitted to haul waste tires.
The Environmental Protection Department, after completion of a remediation of a waste tire site, would itemize the costs and require the site owner to pay the costs within 30 days or less. The owner may place this amount in escrow or post an appeal bond in this amount and challenge it. A refusal to pay for the remediation costs shall be deemed a judgment in favor of the Commonwealth and, upon entering and docketing this record with the Prothonotary, the Commonwealth would have a lien against this property. This lien would be priority second to any lien for real estate taxes.
The Environmental Quality Board would encourage the beneficial use of recycled tire products.
