Tire-dumper gets jail time

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - State officials say a Detroit businessman has been sentenced to six months in jail for dumping more than 70,000 old tires in a northwest side neighborhood.
    
The Detroit Free Press reports Friday that Beal's Rubber Recycling chief executive Henry Ross pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of failing to register a tire recycling collection site, failing to provide bonding and not complying with tire pile size and spacing restrictions.
    
Ross also received probation and was ordered to pay nearly $90,000 to dispose of the tires.
    
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says scrap tire haulers were charged 80 cents per tire. The price was too low to make a profit shredding and recycling the tires which then were dumped on a two-acre site.
