To help eliminate illegal dumping of tires and educate the public about proper tire management, the York County Solid Waste Authority (Authority) is offering free tire disposal for residents at the York County Resource Recovery Center. Pre-registration is required and the program is for York County residents only. Businesses are not eligible to participate.

Residents must pre-register for the program by calling Kelly Megonnel at the Authority at (717) 845-1066 between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, starting May 1, 2017. Tire deliveries will be scheduled to occur between May 15 and June 12, 2017. Registration ends May 31, 2017. Registrants will receive a dashboard placard for a free one-time disposal of up to 10 tires. Tires must be removed from the rim and may not exceed 32” in diameter. Tires may not be excessively dirty or full of water. This program is limited to one placard per household. The York County Resource Recovery Center can only accept a limited number of tires per day and deliveries will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.

This program is a result of the Authority’s support of Keep York Beautiful and its efforts to prevent and eliminate illegal dumping. Dave Vollero, Authority Executive Director, notes that “Residents can and should place old tires out with their regular garbage. The special tire acceptance program is being held to raise awareness that tires should be properly disposed of as household waste and to help prevent illegal dumping of tires.” Tires collected at the curb with regular garbage must be removed from the rim and may not exceed 32” in diameter. Residents should call their waste hauler for specifics on how many tires can be placed out with each pick-up.

Tom Smith, Executive Director of Keep York Beautiful, points out that “Proper
management of old tires eliminates potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes and
results in a cleaner and healthier community.”

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an
integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource
recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in
Manchester Township and conducts a year-round free litter disposal program to
encourage York County residents, organizations, civic groups, schools, and
neighborhoods to clean up litter and illegal dumpsites. Waste collected in clean-up
programs can be disposed of free of charge at the York County Resource Recovery
Center. Pre-registration is required. For more information about the free litter program,
call the Authority at (717) 845-1066.

Keep York Beautiful is an affiliate chapter of Keep America Beautiful and
supporter of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. Its mission is to empower York County
residents to make our communities clean and beautiful. Keep York Beautiful
coordinates cleanups across York County and provides education and outreach
programming. Residents interested in helping to clean up an illegal dumpsite should
call Tom Smith at Keep York Beautiful at (717) 840-2375, or email him at:
tls35@psu.edu. Keep York Beautiful will assist by providing free gloves, bags and
safety vests.
