Scrap Tire Advisory Committee (STAC)

The Scrap Tire Advisory Committee (STAC) was originally created by the Waste and Hazardous Materials Division in September 2005 to foster continued interaction between the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and stakeholders.  The first meeting of the STAC was held in the spring of 2006.


The STAC grew out of the Scrap Tire Work Group which was formed in April 2005 to assist the DEQ with developing recommendations for statutory amendments and other regulatory and policy changes to improve the Scrap Tire Program administered under Part 169, Scrap Tires, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (Part 169).  The Scrap Tire Work Group process highlighted the benefits of having a forum for the DEQ and stakeholders to exchange information.  To foster continued interaction between the DEQ and stakeholders, the STAC was formed.  In December of 2006, Part 169 was amended to require the DEQ Director to appoint members to the STAC.  The STAC will be available to advise the DEQ on implementation of Part 169 and for both the DEQ and stakeholders to identify and address challenges and opportunities in the Scrap Tire Program as they arise.  In addition to such other issues the DEQ requests the STAC to consider, the STAC shall advise the DEQ on the report required every three years on the effectiveness of Part 169 and the relevance of national standards or specifications for commodity determinations. 


Purpose of the Scrap Tire Advisory Committee (STAC): 

 The purpose of the STAC is to provide an open forum for discussion of issues and trends in the scrap tire industry, and to facilitate improvements to the Scrap Tire Program administered under Part 169.
