Montgomery County Residents Will Cash in Used Tires - September 21, 2014

On September 21, 2014, Montgomery County Environmental Services will host its second ever Tire Buyback event. Residents can earn $2 for every scrap/used tire they bring, up to a maximum of 10 tires per vehicle.

Scrap tires can create health and safety hazards, pollute the environment, and become neighborhood eyesores if they are not properly stored or discarded.

 

“Last year’s event was a dramatic success,” said Montgomery County Commission President Dan Foley. “Our residents cleaned up their neighborhoods, and we saw a reduction in the amount of scrap tires that had to be removed from illegal dump sites.”

Montgomery County Solid Waste Transfer Station

1001 Encrete Lane

Moraine, OH 45439

Sunday, September 21, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

All tires collected at the event will be shredded and recycled, and then used to make playground mulch, landfill liner and other materials.

 

This event is open to all Montgomery County residents, and identification will be required to confirm residency. Participants will be paid $2 per tire in cash, up to a maximum of 10 tires per vehicle. Only passenger vehicle tires will be accepted – no farm tires, tractor tires or oversized tires. (Please note that hauling more than 10 tires at a time without an appropriate state registration is a felony.)

 

The 2013 Montgomery County Tire Buyback has been recognized for its innovation and community impact with a Gold Excellence Award from the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and a 2014 Achievement Award from The National Association of Counties (NACo).

 

During last year’s inaugural event, Montgomery County collected more than 15,000 tires, weighing 180 tons. Approximately 1,600 cars passed through the event. After the buyback, the Solid Waste District saw a 38 percent reduction in scrap tires processing receipts, and the City of Dayton saw a 58 percent reduction in monthly scrap tire collection costs.
