Tire Recycling

Tires can be a costly and inconvenient item for Omaha citizens to dispose, leaving many tires improperly dumped. This event allows citizens to recycle their tires for free, minimizing illegal dumping in our city. Tires must be removed from the rim. 

The next free tire collection event is scheduled for Saturday, October 21 from 8am to 3pm at Levi Carter Park. The event will be held in the boat ramp parking lot at Levi Carter Park (near the corner of East Carter Boulevard and North 12th Street East). This event is for Douglas County residents only, businesses are NOT permitted to utilize this resource. 

Bike tires are not accepted at this event. They should be discarded with regular household garbage.

While there will be volunteers helping, it is the responsibility of the owner to unload tires. There is no limit to the amount of tires you bring as long as they are personally generated tires (not from a commercial entity). If you're bringing more than 50 tires, please let us know ahead of time by emailing HelloKOB@cityofomaha.org or call 402-444-7774.

After two successful tire recycling events in the fall of 2016, we are pleased to report that 8,258 tires (98.51 tons) were diverted from the landfill. That's equivalent to the weight of 20 elephants! These tires were recycled into a material to line septic systems.

Thank you to Baxter Subaru for sponsoring Youth Fall Cleanup!
