  260.275.  Scrap tire site, closure plan, contents — financial assurance instrument, purpose, how calculated. — 1.  Each operator of a scrap tire site shall ensure that the area is properly closed upon cessation of operations.  The department of natural resources may require that a closure plan be submitted with the application for a permit.  The closure plan, as approved by the department, shall include at least the following:

  (1)  A description of how and when the area will be closed;

  (2)  The method of final disposition of any scrap tires remaining on the site at the time notice of closure is given to the department.

  2.  The operator shall notify the department at least ninety days prior to the date he expects closure to begin.  No scrap tires may be received by the scrap tire site after the date closure is to begin.

  3.  The permittee shall provide a financial assurance instrument in such an amount and form as prescribed by the department to ensure that, upon abandonment, cessation or interruption of the operation of the site, an approved closure plan is completed.  The amount of the financial assurance instrument shall be based upon the current costs of similar cleanups using data from actual scrap tire cleanup project bids received by the department to remediate scrap tire sites of similar size.  If scrap tires are accumulated at a solid waste disposal area, the existing closure financial assurance instrument filed for the solid waste disposal area may be applied to the requirements of this section.  Any interest that accrues to any financial assurance instrument established pursuant to this section shall remain with that instrument and shall be applied against the operator's obligation under this section until the instrument is released by the department.  The director shall authorize the release of the financial assurance instrument after the department has been notified by the operator that the site has been closed, and after inspection, the department approves closure of the scrap tire site.

  4.  If the operator of a scrap tire site fails to properly implement the closure plan, the director shall order the operator to implement such plan, and take other steps necessary to assure the proper closure of the site pursuant to section 260.228 and this section.

  5.  A coal-fired electric generating facility that burns tire-derived fuel shall not be considered a scrap tire site or solid waste disposal area.
