House Passes HB 6486

May 25, 2023

I was happy to serve as a co-sponsor and to support HB 6486, which passed in the House on Wednesday. We believe it will help prevent illegal dumping of tires by establishing an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program for tires, and keep discarded tires out of our landscape and waterways. Under the bill, tire producers must create or join a stewardship organization by January 1, 2025. The stewardship organization must develop a plan to implement the program and submit it to DEEP for approval.
