9B.1  Registration of waste tire haulers--bond--penalty.

1.  For the purposes of this section, "waste tire hauler" means a person who transports for hire more than forty waste tires in a single load for commercial purposes.

2.  A waste tire hauler shall register with, and obtain a certificate of registration from, the secretary of state before hauling waste tires in this state. Requirements for registration of a waste tire hauler shall include a provision that waste tire haulers shall pay all amounts due to any individual or group of individuals when due for damages caused by improper disposal of waste tires by the waste tire hauler or the waste tire hauler's employee while acting within the scope of employment. The waste tire hauler may apply for a certificate of registration by submitting the forms provided for that purpose and shall provide the name of the applicant and the address of the applicant's principal place of business and any additional information as deemed appropriate by the secretary of state.

3.  A certificate of registration issued under this section is valid for one year from the date of issuance. A registered waste tire hauler may renew the certificate by filing a renewal application in the form prescribed by the secretary of state, accompanied by any applicable renewal fee.

4.  A certificate of registration shall at all times be carried and displayed in the vehicle used for transportation of waste tires and shall be shown to a representative of the state department of transportation, upon request. The state department of transportation may inspect vehicles used for the transportation of waste tires and request that the certificate of registration of the waste tire hauler be shown, upon request.

5.  The secretary of state shall establish a reasonable registration fee sufficient to offset expenses incurred in the administration of this section.

6.  The secretary of state shall require that a waste tire hauler have on file with the secretary of state before the issuance or renewal of a registration certificate, a surety bond executed by a surety company authorized to do business in this state in the sum of a minimum of ten thousand dollars, which bond shall be continuous in nature until canceled by the surety. A surety shall provide at least thirty days' notice in writing to the waste tire hauler and to the secretary of state indicating the surety's intent to cancel the bond and the effective date of the cancellation. The surety bond shall be for the benefit of the citizens of this state and shall be conditioned upon the waste tire hauler's willingness to comply with this section. The surety's liability under this subsection is limited to the amount of the bond or the amount of the damages or moneys due, whichever is less. However, this subsection does not limit the amount of damages recoverable from a waste tire hauler to the amount of the surety bond. The bond shall be made in a form prescribed by the commissioner of insurance and written by a company authorized by the commissioner of insurance to do business in this state.

7.  The secretary of state shall adopt rules including imposition of civil penalties necessary for the implementation and administration of this chapter.

8.  A person who knowingly and willfully violates a provision of this section is subject to a civil penalty in an amount not to exceed ten thousand dollars. Moneys collected from the penalties imposed shall be deposited in the waste volume reduction and recycling fund established pursuant to section 455D.15.
