To process scale-house transactions in a quick and effective manner, all commercial vehicles must display the company name, gross vehicle weight, and capacity in cubic yards on any truck bed larger than a pick-up. This includes modified beds and trailers. Vehicles shall be marked on both sides and in letters 3 inches in height or taller. This will enable us to determine the cubic yard charge and process your transaction in a timelier manner.

Then you need a Florida State Waste Tire Collector Decal. The Waste Tire Management Program for the State of Florida is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. This program has several components: a regulatory program that addresses how waste tires can be moved, stored, processed, used or disposed of; an abatement or cleanup program that assists in cleaning up illegal tire piles; and a market development program that works with potential end users for waste tires. In addition, there is a waste tire grant program that distributes funding to counties to assist them in local waste tire management efforts.
Pursuant to Rule 62-711.400, Florida Administrative Code, no person may contract with a waste tire collector for the transportation, disposal, or processing of waste tires unless the collector is registered with the department or exempt from registration requirements. Any person contracting with a waste tire collector for the transportation of more than 25 waste tires per month from a single business location shall maintain records for that location and make them available for review by the department or by law enforcement officers. These records shall contain the date when the tires were transported, the quantity of tires, the registration number of the collector, and the name of the driver.
Waste Tire Collector Decals expire April 1 of each year.
