Monroe County residents will again have multiple opportunities to recycle unwanted passenger vehicle tires through a program offered by the Monroe County Recycling and Green Community Program, the Monroe County Drain Commission, and The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) Scrap Tire Cleanup Grant.
Dates for 2024 (all events 9 am-12 pm):
The collections will be held the last Wednesday of the month from April through July at the Monroe County Drain Commission Office, 1005 South Raisinville Road, from 9 am to noon or until the trailer is full. The dates and hours above are the only times that tires can be left at the site. Tires will not be accepted at any other time; and leaving tires after hours is illegal dumping, which is considered to be a punishable offense.
Participants are allowed to bring up to 10 tires and collected tires will be recycled at no charge. All tires must be clean and off the rim. Only passenger vehicles or light truck tires will be accepted. This program is for Monroe County residents only. Tires from commercial sources will not be accepted. Residents who have large tires to recycle can call the Environmental Health Office at 734-240-7900 for recycling information.
