[ARCHIVED] August Tire Collection

My project-1 - 2023-07-18T095339.530

Lenawee County residents have an additional opportunity to recycle unwanted passenger vehicle tires for a nominal fee.

Thursday, August 17tfrom 1 pm – 5 pm

Lenawee County Recycling Drop-Off Site - 307 River Street, Adrian


Proper disposal of tires is essential for the health and safety of you and the environment. Piles of scrap tires are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests and are also a serious fire hazard. Tires collected at the event will be recycled into materials such as playground and landscape applications, rubberized asphalt road projects, in-fill material for synthetic athletic fields, and rubber chips for septic fields and other engineered projects. Residents are encouraged to dispose of old tires when purchasing new tires at the retailer.T


  • This program is for Lenawee County residents only
  • Residents are allowed to bring up to 10 tires per vehicle
  • Clean passenger vehicle and light truck tires will be collected for $2 each
  • Motorcycle tires for $1 each
  • Tires from commercial sources will not be accepted
  • Leaving tires after hours is illegal dumping, which is a punishable offense 

The tire recycling program is a great resource for our community. By providing residents with an economical, easy way to properly dispose of old tires, this program helps address illegal dumping in our county and is funded by a grant from the Scrap Tire Cleanup Project through The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).
