The County of Riverside Code Enforcement Department has been receiving grant funds through the State of California Department of Resources, Recycling, and Recovery (CalRecycle) for several years. The funds provide for the Department’s Tire Team, which includes 3 full-time Code officers, equipment, and half-time of a Code Supervisor. The Tire Team inspects waste tire facilities, tire dealers, auto dismantlers, tire haulers, and other points of waste tire generation. The team ensures compliance with all applicable codes, laws, regulations, and manifest requirements for waste tire disposal. Proper disposal of tires reduces the risk of fires; reduces the spread of vector diseases, such as Zika and West Nile virus; and protects the environment.
