If a municipality hires a private company to operate their collection site, does the private company have to register and report that site?
No. If a municipality has a private company operating a site on their behalf, the company is not required to register the municipally-owned sites as long as the tires are picked up by a registered hauler and delivered to a registered processor or retreader.
 
To ensure tires continue to be picked up from your sites, you will need to make sure those sites are included in the collection systems established by tire producers or Producer Responsibility Organizations (PROs). Since most producers will work with PROs to establish their collection systems, municipalities should contact one of the registered PROs listed on our website to get their sites included. Visit our webpage about PROs for more information.
 
If the private company owns or operates collection sites that are not owned by a municipality, it is required to register and report its non-municipally-owned sites.
