Pennsylvania state lawmakers are pushing to clean up tire trash in Philadelphia, according to an article in the Philly Voice. The new legislation is intended to tighten regulations on illegal trash dumping, updating Act 227 of 2004, and will address the enforcement of waste laws including the illegal dumping of tires, implementing a fine of $5,000 per illegally dumped tire. In addition, it states that violators of the law could be forced to forfeit the car they used while breaking the dumping guidelines, according to local reports.

In an ongoing effort to clean up what some refer to as “Filthydelphia,” concerns are raised with illegal tire disposal due to standing water that allows for disease-carrying mosquitos to breed, and the potential for tire fires.
