Waste tires present environmental, health, and safety hazards. Rainwater that accumulates in tire piles creates an ideal environment for mosquitoes, which are known to transmit West Nile Virus. Tire piles can invite unwanted pests near your residence. Tire piles that catch fire can burn for weeks causing the rubber to decompose into oil, which can pollute ground and surface water.
Take this opportunity to collect unused and unwanted household tires from your residence and bring them to the Warren County DPW building on Saturday May 5th to have them properly disposed of. A small fee of $2 per tire will be collected at the drop off. There is a limit of 10 tires per household. If you have more than ten please call our office for more information. In order for us to accept the tires they need to be:
Whole tires (not cut or a partial tire)
Clear of fill in the middle (concrete/soil)
Clean (no excessive mud or dirt or stones)
Non heavy equipment tires (no taller than 36”)
With your help we have the capacity to remove nearly 1000 tires from the environment in Warren County. For more information view our flyer or contact our office at 518-623-3119 or Dean Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
