The Alabama legislature has passed a scrap tire bill that establishes the state's first scrap tire fund and sets strict standards for tire storage and abatement. The Rubber Manufacturers Association, which worked closely with the Alabama Scrap Tire Study Commission to create and promote the legislation, heralded its June 11, 2003 passage in a June 12 news release. No one may keep scrap tires exposed to the elements for more than 30 days, and everyone who has accumulated tires must obey National Fire Protection Association guidelines for tire storage and vector control. Alabama is the second state in as many months to approve major scrap tire legislation.
