County of Passaic To Recycle Tires

WEST MILFORD, NJ – The Passaic County Division of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be offering all county residents the opportunity to recycle their unwanted tires safely and easily on Saturday, September 30, 2023 rain or shine from 9 am to 2 pm at the West Milford Recycling Center located at 30 Lycosky Drive, West Milford, NJ. This free program enables residents to bring up to 8 tires per household per event, with or without rims, for recycling.

It is important to recycle tires for a variety of reasons, including their becoming breeding grounds for diseased mosquitos, as well as the potential for fire hazards if stored improperly. With Eastern Equine Encephalitis and the Zika virus just the latest threats to the health and well-being of our residents, those with unwanted tires are encouraged to remove them from areas where they can collect standing water, and instead bring them to the County’s recycling collection program.

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 County 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. For further information, please call the County of Passaic’s Division of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738.
