Money appropriated to the agency for waste tire management may be spent for regulation of permitted waste tire facilities, research and studies to determine the technical and economic feasibility of uses for tire-derived products, and public education on waste tire management.
Materials derived from waste tires may not be used as lightweight fill in the construction of public roads in the state unless the construction plan is prepared by a professional engineer experienced in the geotechnical field and licensed in the state of Minnesota. The plan shall include, but not be limited to, the location, duration, and length of the project, the depth of fill, the depth of cover, the size of waste tire pieces, the plan for encapsulating the waste tire pieces, and the fire protection plan. All engineering specifications must be consistent with the current lightweight tire fill engineering practices as developed for roadways by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
