Description This evaluation must include, but is not limited to, the following: An inventory of all major tire piles that exist by county and an identification of whether those tire piles are on public or private lands; an assessment of the ability to recover tire clean-up and disposal costs from the responsible parties for each of those sites; and an inventory of major tire pile that were previously placed in marine waters in an attempt to establish artificial reefs, including a review of the environmental and safety issues associated with those marine tire piles. Based on the information gathered, the final report must include recommendations for the highest and best use of approximately $2,000,000 in time-limited resources for tire piles clean-up activities and recommendations to improve the Department of Ecology’s current waste tire clean-up program in the future.
