Purpose:

This program provides opportunities to divert waste tires from landfill disposal, prevent illegal tire dumping, & promote markets for recycled-content tire products. TIP provides a reimbursement to eligible businesses that use crumb rubber in eligible products or substitute crumb rubber for virgin rubber, plastic, or other raw materials in products. The program’s goal is to increase demand for crumb rubber & promote higher value products.
