List of Pennsylvania's Priority Waste Tire Piles

The following are the Department of Environmental Protection's priority enforcement lists of abandoned and commercial waste tire piles in Pennsylvania. Required by the Waste Tire Recycling Act, these lists are comprised of those sites in the commonwealth with more than 10,000 waste tires. In order to qualify for state funded cleanup, a waste tire pile must be on the abandoned waste tire pile list. These lists will be periodically updated to reflect reductions in Pennsylvania's waste tire piles under the waste tire program.

Please contact the appropriate regional office to determine the current status of the waste tire pile. Please note that some waste tire piles may be known by several different names. When identifying or referring to a particular site, please provide all of the available information on that site in addition to the listed site name (such as the county, municipality, address, property owner, and any available location descriptions). Doing so will help reduce any confusion that may occur with the identification of a specific pile. The number of tires contained in each pile is an estimate and should not be construed as being an exact count.
