Board staff annually estimates the quantity of waste tires generated, diverted and disposed in California. These estimates are based upon a California tire market survey conducted by staff. The survey includes discussions with numerous industry contacts, an analysis of information from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Scrap Tire Management Council (STMC) and a review of tire retreading statistics. This survey is compiled in a table.
