RMA opposes Vermont tire marking legislation

Order Reprints

The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) claims that the State of Vermont's proposed legislation that would require all tires sold within the state to be marked as such is impractical and would not benefit the state's scrap tire management efforts.

RMA officials are worried that a tire marking system could be copied and then used to mark out-of-state tires.

The proposed bill also would require the state's Transportation Agency to contract for the collection of scap tires from solid waste facilities.

The requirement "raises many technical questions," say RMA officials. "The collection process as outlined in the bill is laborious," and the small numbers of tires that would be collected "will inflate the cost of transporting scrap tires."
