Help Protect the Environment by Recycling Your Used Tires

ESSEX COUNTY EXECUTIVE DIVINCENZO ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO BRING OLD TIRES TO ESSEX COUNTY USED TIRE RECYCLING DAY

Cedar Grove, NJ – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. and the Essex County Department of Public invite Essex County residents to bring used and unwanted tires to the Essex County Used Tire Recycling Day. It will be held as follows:

Date:           Saturday, October 27, 2018
Time:          9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Place:          Essex County Public Works Department
                    99 West Bradford Avenue
                    Cedar Grove, NJ


“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to protect our environment and reduce our waste stream. Along with our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day and Computer & Electronics Recycling Day, turning in old tires is another great way to remove hazardous materials from our waste stream and have them disposed properly and safely,” DiVincenzo said. “Not only are old tires a nuisance, but they pose a serious health hazard. Rain water can collect in tires that are left outside. This can become an ideal environment for mosquitoes to breed and creates a serious public health and quality of life problem,” said the County Executive.

During the Essex County Used Tire Recycling Day, rubber tires with or without metal rims will be accepted. Rims will not be returned to residents; they will be recycled. The collected tires will be delivered to a State-licensed transfer waste facility, which will recycle the tires into new uses.

The Essex County Used Tire Recycling Day is for Essex County residents only. Residents are not charged when they bring materials, but they must provide proof of residency at the site. Commercial businesses may not drop off materials. For more information, please call the Essex County Department of Public Works at 973-226-8500, Ext. 2580.
