Lists of Mississippi Registered Commercial Waste Tire Haulers
Application Process for Waste Tire Haulers

MDEQ has transitioned from the use of paper and PDF forms for waste tire hauling applications and annual reports to an online data entry system. Therefore, MDEQ will now require all waste tire haulers to electronically submit their application and annual report using the Mississippi DEQ Solid Waste Facility Reporting Program via the Re-TRAC Connect (Re-TRAC) software platform. Re-TRAC should be used whether a hauler is new to the program or renewing their certification.

For new applicants, registration applications should be submitted at least 14 days before the waste tire hauler intends to begin transporting waste tires. Current waste tire haulers should renew their registration on or before May 31 every year. The annual report should also be submitted in conjunction with the renewal application, or if no renewal application is submitted, the annual report shall be submitted by July 1 after the calendar year.

Applicants who have already registered with the MDEQ Re-TRAC program can use the link below to log into the program to access and complete their application and annual report.
