There will not be any Tire Drop-off days this year. The May and October 2020 Tire Drop-off Days that were scheduled have been canceled.
What are the options for recycling tires? If you have your tires changed, pay the fee to have the old tires recycled. If you already have tires that you need to dispose of, look on the internet for tire recycling businesses. Call local companies to inquire about dropping off tires. If you do not have computer access, call us to ask for the names and numbers of local tire recycling companies.
Do not leave uncovered tires outside. It is easy for water to collect in tires. Stagnant water creates a perfect breeding ground for mosquitos. If you place a tarp over tires, pull it taught and check it for standing water frequently. If you make a tire swing, drill holes in the bottom of the tire so that water will drain out. Help keep your family and the local community safe by making sure there is no standing water in your yard.
If you are a Dartmouth SMART customer, you may also take two tires per year to the Dartmouth Transfer Station at no charge. Please have your punch card with you. For more information, please contact the Dartmouth DPW at (508) 999-0740.
