Recycle Your Tires with Passaic County

Recycle Your Tires with Passaic County

The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be offering residents the opportunity to recycle their unwanted tires safely and easily from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, December 2, 2017 rain or shine at the Wanaque Campus of Passaic County Community College located at 500 Union Avenue, Wanaque (Haskell), NJ. This free program enables residents to bring up to 8 tires per residential vehicle per event, with or without rims, for recycling. 

“It is important to recycle tires for many reasons, including their becoming breeding grounds for 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,” according to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste and Recycling Programs Manager,

All tires will be recycled into other useful products such as playground mulch and facility surfacing. Residents will have assistance with unloading at the event site. Proof of residency will be required, and only residents may participate, with an 8 tire limit per vehicle. 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.
