Following the success of April’s Retire Your Tires Amnesty Day, Walker County Government scheduled a second mini-event in 2019. The additional tire amnesty day event was offered on Saturday, November 2nd at the Walker County Landfill. 1,464 tires were removed from our community during the additional amnesty day.
629 Walker County residents took advantage of the program earlier this year, discarding 8,933 tires at the landfill for free!
Walker County began offering an annual tire amnesty day in 2017. Over the course of four events, 22,681 tires have been removed from the community and sent to a recycling center to be turned into industrial fuel or rubber mulch for landscaping and playgrounds.
During each amnesty event, car and light truck tires with wheel sizes 20 inches or less will be accepted, as well as ATV (all-terrain vehicle) tires. Tires must be dismounted from wheels and free of mud and debris. Tires with rims and large truck, tractor or heavy equipment tires are not eligible for amnesty.
Retire Your Tires Amnesty Day is only for residents, not for commercial businesses. Proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or current utility bill, will be required to dispose of tires for free during the amnesty event. Those participating will also be required to unload their own tires and adhere to a limit of 12 tires per vehicle.
