The Colorado General Assembly passed legislation in 2010, House Bill 10-1018, creating the Processor and End User Program, C.R.S. 25-17-202.5. The purpose of such partial reimbursements shall be to assist new and existing waste tire recycling technologies to become economically feasible and to thereby encourage the use of waste tires and reduce the storage of waste tires in Colorado.
New regulations went into effect on December 30, 2012 (6 CCR 1007-2 Part 4) due to the passage of House Bill 12-1034. Some changes include:
Due to these changes, only version 7 of the Processor & End User Application will be accepted for January 2013 applications and forward. The new regulations, application and the Tire Bale Processor/End User Approval Form are available at the bottom of this webpage.
