Keeping Communities Connected and People Informed
ANNUAL TIRE RECYCLE MANIA
Each year, Martin County hosts a FREE tire drive to encourage residents to recycle used tires.
WHY RECYCLE TIRES?
Mosquitoes love to use old, discarded tires to lay their eggs. A single tire can produce hundreds of mosquitoes! Getting rid of scrap tires around your home will eliminate mosquito breeding sites in your neighborhood. It's good for you and the environment!
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Residents may bring up to 10 tires per family to any of the locations below. No semi or tractor tires will be accepted from commercial businesses or farm operations. Staff will be onsite to assist.
