Whatcom County residents will have the opportunity to dispose of old tires at two free drop-off events in late September and early October.
Accumulations of waste tires can be a breeding ground for vermin that spread diseases such as mosquitos, and contribute to pollution and fire risk. The tire recycling event is hosted by Whatcom County Health and Community Services and is funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology. Since 2015, similar events in Whatcom County have collected over 310 tons of waste tires for recycling and disposal.
