Cost of tire disposal raises hackles
By Tony Gonzalez
The Tennessean

A handful of Tennessee counties are fed up with the state’s scrap tire disposal program and have opted not to take state reimbursements for collecting tires to be hauled off and recycled.

Tire recycling will continue, as required by law, but instead of taking state money, Cheatham County and two others are looking for new ways to cover costs.

Officials in an additional 44 counties, including Davidson, Robertson, Williamson and Wilson, are trying to gauge whether their expenses will be covered under a new reimbursement rate. Also uncertain, officials said, is whether the changes will spur more illegal tire dumping.

But one thing is certain: Someone will pay.
