§ 27-1911. Prohibition on land burial.

1. No person shall knowingly dispose of waste tires in a landfill
except as provided in subdivision two of this section.

2. No moneys from the waste management and cleanup fund shall be used
to dispose of waste tires in a landfill unless the department has

collection systems in the construction or operation of a landfill are
not considered disposal.
