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. The next free tire collection event is scheduled for Saturday, October 21 from 8am to 3pm at Levi Carter Park. The exact drop-off location within the park will be announced closer to the event. This event is for residents only, businesses are NOT permitted to utilize this resource.

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.
