Georgia Scrap Tire Carrier Bond

How much does a scrap tire carrier bond cost in Georgia?

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Environmental Protection Division requires scrap tire carriers to post surety bonds in order to operate within the state. A $10,000 bond is required for carriers that transport 5,000 or fewer tires per month, and a $20,000 bond is required if the carrier transports more than 5,000 tires per month. Since there are two possible bond amounts, applicants must verify their required bond amount with the state prior to bonding.

These bonds are subject to underwriting, so the price you’ll pay depends not only on your required bond amount but also on a review of your personal credit report. Because the amount of the bond— and therefore the cost— can vary so greatly, we recommend submitting a bond request to connect with our team of surety bond experts who will walk you through our fast and easy bonding process!

Why do I need this bond?

Georgia scrap tire carrier bonds ensure that principals (scrap tire carriers) perform their duties in accordance with the Georgia Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Act and fulfill all obligations of the Scrap Tire Carrier Permit. Prohibited business practices under this act include, but are not limited to:

  • knowingly violating any material condition or requirement of the permit
  • purposely omitting material information or placing false material statements on labels, manifests, records, reports or other documents filed for purposes of compliance with the Georgia Code
  • knowingly transporting tires without a manifest
  • not maintaining receipts indicating disposal of the scrap tires
  • storing more than the maximum amount of tires in the state at any given time

If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects the state from financial loss.
