PASSAIC COUNTY 2017 TIRE RECYCLING COLLECTION EVENT

Passaic County to Recycle Tires in the City of Passaic

 

The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs continues to offer residents the opportunity to recycle their unwanted tires safely and easily. The next collection event will be held from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 29, 2017 rain or shine at the Passaic Campus of the Passaic County Community College located at 2 Paulison Avenue, Passaic, NJ. This free program enables residents to bring up to 8 tires per household per event, with or without rims, for recycling.


            According to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste and Recycling Programs Manager, “It is important to recycle tires for a variety of reasons, including their becoming breeding grounds for dangerous, diseased mosquitos, as well as the potential for fire hazards if stored improperly. With the Zika virus just the latest threat to the health and well-being of our residents, those with unwanted tires are doubly encouraged to remove them from areas where they can collect standing water, and instead bring them to the County’s drop-off program for recycling.“


            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 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. Recycling services provided by Tire Management, Paterson, N.J. For further information, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738.
