Every year, The Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District applies for funding for tire amnesty days through the Ohio EPA’s Recycle Ohio Community & Litter Grant program. We are pleased to announce that a grant was awarded for the 2021-2022 grant cycle. This year’s Adams County tire collection day will be held on Wednesday October 20 from 10AM – 6:30PM at the Adams County Waste and Recycle Station, located at 95 Trefz Road, West Union, Ohio 45693. This is a wonderful opportunity for residents to dispose of scrap tires that were accumulated from personal use, illegally dumped on their property, or were on their property when they purchased it. Per the grant guidelines: tires can be accepted from Adams County households only, meaning no tires from businesses (auto dealers or repair shops, trucking companies, etc.) can be accepted. A disposal fee of only $1.00 per tire will be collected from the resident at the time of unloading. Tires mounted on rims will be accepted, but please keep them separated from the off-rim tires in your vehicle for ease of sorting at the drop-off site. Rubber equipment tracks (from skid steers, etc.) cannot be accepted.
Important note: Residents will be responsible for unloading all tires they bring to the drop-off site – it is recommended that you bring someone to help you unload.
Although we have been able to hold tire collection events at various locations throughout the county for the past several years, there is no guarantee that additional funding will be available for future events. Most tire retailers and tire installers will gladly accept and properly dispose of your scrap tires for a small fee. We highly encourage you to take advantage of this service in the future when you purchase new tires. Tires can also be disposed of year round at the Adams County Waste and Recycle Station (95 Trefz Road, West Union, Ohio 45693) for only 12 cents per pound.
