Free tire recycling at Knott Landfill

Free is good, right? Maybe it isn’t very exciting, but here’s your chance to recycle old tires you might have hanging around the garage, at no charge. (Usually there is a fee for tires, but rates aren’t posted on the website.)

September 18, 2010 from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Knott Landfill Recycling & Transfer Facility.  Bring those old snow tires and balding retreads from the garage, back yard, or neighborhood. Limit of 12 tires per load. If you have more than 12 please call the Solid Waste office. Tires can be on or off the rim but keep them separated.  Only tires with rim size of up to 24 1/2″ can be accepted.  Call 541-317-3163 for more information.  No heavy equipment tires, retailers or fleet tires.

You can find more info about this and other free events at the Deschutes County Solid Waste website.
