March is Tire Amnesty month in Gloucester County

Resident can bring tires to Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex

Press release issued by Gloucester County

Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger reminds residents that in honor of Tire Amnesty Month, the Solid Waste Complex will be accepting free tire drop-off throughout the month of March.

Damminger said, “Discarded and forgotten tires can fill with standing water creating a breeding ground for mosquitos that can carry viruses such as the West Nile and Zika. By collecting tires from residents we are able to properly discard them and reduce these diseases from being able to gain traction.”

Residents can bring their tires to the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex at 493 Monroeville Rd. (Route 694) in South Harrison Township from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., March 1 through March 29, Monday to Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on March 17.

Tires may be on or off the rim, but must be separated by type. There is a limit of 25 tires per residence. Nothing over a passenger pick-up truck tire size will be accepted. This program is for Gloucester County residents only. No commercial businesses will be accepted.

Residents who need directions or have more than 25 tires please contact: the GCIA/Office of Recycling at (856) 478–6045
