Free Scrap Tire Collection


The Papio Missouri River NRD, Nebraska Loess Hills RC&D Council, and the Lower Elkhorn NRD are organizing a free scrap tire collection! The collection will be Friday, August 7, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon) at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Arlington, NE.

 

The 10 county collection area includes Burt, Colfax, Cuming, Dakota, Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy, Stanton, Thurston and Washington Counties. Residents and businesses which do not charge tire disposal fees are encouraged to dispose of their scrap tires during this collection.

 

The fairgrounds are located in Arlington, NE on the north side of HWY 30. Vehicles should enter the fairgrounds using the east entrance on HWY 30. The collection will accept all sizes of car, truck and tractor tires. Each load is limited to 100 tires. Loads with less than 20 tires are encouraged to arrive during the last 90 minutes of the collection. This will usually result in a shorter wait time for these smaller loads.

 

No rims will be accepted. Tires cannot be accepted from any business or entity which charges a tire disposal fee. Do not leave vehicles unattended in line. Limited unloading help will be available, so plan to unload your own. Semi-trucks may not be able to unload if there is limited maneuvering room.

 

Funding for this collection is provided by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. For more information about the collection please contact Deborah Ward at the Papio Missouri River NRD (402)374-1920 ex. 101.
