KALAMAZOO COUNTY FREE SCRAP TIRE RECYCLING
The Kalamazoo Conservation District is providing scrap tire collections at no cost to Kalamazoo County residents. Not only do improperly disposed tires make up a large amount of roadside trash, they can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. The tires that are collected will be recycled and used in roads, driveways, playgrounds, and a variety of other products.
Appointments are required and can be made by signing up on the Kalamazoo Conservation District’s Website. Kalamazoo County residents can sign up for any of the events and must provide proof of county residency. Each household may sign up to drop off up to 10 passenger tires. The 10-tire limit will allow more households to participate. Please note that there is also a 10-tire transportation limit set by the Michigan Department of Transportation. Only passenger tires with rims removed will be collected and no businesses are allowed to participate.
