Did you know that Iowans generate 3 million scrap tires annually? According to the Iowa DNR, that equates to about one scrap tire generated per person, per year. That’s a lot of tires that, if not properly disposed of, can create health and fire safety risks, litter ditches, and contaminate waterways. Not to mention the unsightliness of a heap of stockpiled tires.

If you are spinning your wheels trying to get rid of an old tire or two, we have some good news for you. Residents in many Central Iowa communities have a safe, smart and FREE option for disposing of unwanted tires through Tire Drop-Off Events. 

*limit five tires per household*
