Passaic County to Recycle Tires

The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs continues to offer residents the opportunity to recycle their unwanted tires safely and easily. The next collection event will be held from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 17, 2017 rain or shine at the Passaic County Para-transit Facility Parking Lot located at 1310 Route 23 North, Wayne, NJ (take the access road to the right of Ski Barn). This free program enables residents to bring up to 8 tires per residential vehicle per event, with or without rims, for recycling.

According to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste and Recycling Programs Manager, “It is important to recycle tires for a variety of reasons, including their becoming breeding grounds for dangerous, diseased mosquitos, as well as the potential for fire hazards if stored improperly. With the Zika virus, West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis all threats to the health and well-being of our residents, those with unwanted tires are doubly encouraged to remove them from areas where they can collect standing water, and instead bring them to the County’s drop-off program for recycling.“

All tires will be recycled into other useful products such as playground mulch and facility surfacing. Residents will have assistance unloading their tires at the event site. Proof of residency will be required, and only residents may participate, with an 8 tire limit per vehicle per household. Tires from commercial generators will not be accepted. Recycling services provided by Tire Management, Paterson, N.J. For further information, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738.
