Ordinance 260 was created to support the State statute (CH. 403.717, F.S.) and the rules of Florida Department of Environmental Protection as well as to ensure proper disposal of all waste tires within Duval County. This ordinance regulates all tire dealers/generators and transporters operating within the county. Annual costs to the City and taxpapers for the abatement of illegally dumped tires exceeds $250,000.
