   (a) California currently faces a serious problem with respect to
the collection, disposal, and recycling of used tires that are no

   (b) It is estimated that California has an existing tire inventory
of at least 100 million tires, an amount which grows by over 20
million tires per year.
   (c) California has pursued several methods of tire disposal
including, but not limited to, shredding and as an additive to
asphalt for paving material.
   (d) The cement industry in California has implemented a process
that utilizes used tires as fuel for the kilns essential to the
manufacture of cement.
   (e) Used tires utilized as fuel for those kilns are completely
consumed, including the rubber, fiber, and steel ingredients of the
tire.
   (f) The use of used tires in that process benefits California by
