LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST AB 750, as introduced, Hueso. Solid waste: waste tires. The California Tire Recycling Act imposes a California tire fee on a new tire purchased in the state. The revenue generated from the fee is used, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the purposes of programs related to waste tires.
