Report Suspicious Tire Hauling/Dumping Activity Online

This web page is to report the description and license plate number of any vehicle observed illegally dumping scrap tires or illegally hauling more than ten tires.  If you wish to report illegally dumped scrap tires, please contact Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County at 937-225-4460. 

Thousands of tires are illegally dumped every year in Montgomery County.  Numerous more are stockpiled at residences. Millions of dollars are spent annually to clean up tires and illegal tire dumps statewide. Your tax dollars and other waste-based fees pay for city and county personnel to collect dumped tires and place them into the recycling stream.

Scrap tire transporters are required by law to be registered with the State of Ohio and must only deliver the scrap tires to authorized facilities and not to our alleyways, vacant lots and behind our shopping centers.  

Report suspicious tire hauling or dumping! 

If you see someone hauling more than ten tires that is not a typical hauler or if you see someone illegally dumping, please let us know.

It's simple. All you need to do is write down a few things about the incident. You will need:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Location
  • License Plate Number
  • Make of Vehicle

Please be specific about the location (at the corner of Main St. and Oak St. or northbound on Main St. by Oak St.) 

After you've collected the appropriate information, you can submit it via the form below. Please be as accurate and honest when submitting information about the tire dumping incident you observed.

When Keep Montgomery County Beautiful receives the information it is compared to Ohio's vehicle registration database and an exact match is located.  The information is also checked against the Ohio EPA’s scrap tire transporter registration list.  If the tire hauler is not a registered hauler, a letter is mailed to the tire hauler to remind them about the laws.

If you have observed someone dumping tires, a letter is mailed to remind them that it is a felony to dump tires in the State of Ohio.
