Case Study: Beneficial Use Permit for Scrap Tires at Race Track—While the use of automobile scrap tires as a crash barrier is an authorized beneficial use of scrap tires, the quantity of tires used at a subject site exceeded the 1,500 (tire) limit allowed by rule (Ohio EPA). This presented a challenge for a developer looking to purchase the property – a challenge we resolved by securing a Beneficial Reuse permit for the approximately 165,000 automobile scrap tires to remain as a crash barrier. By securing the Beneficial Reuse permit, the developer avoided extraordinary costs for the removal of the tires as well as the need to then invest into a new crash barrier for the entire race track. To that end, the developer commenced with purchasing the property.
