Free Tire Drop-off for Somerset County Farmers, Residents

 April 18 to 22 in Hillsborough

HILLSBOROUGH – Somerset County Freeholder Mark Caliguire, recycling liaison, encourages residents and farmers to take advantage of an opportunity to dispose of unwanted tires from their property. Up to eight tires per household can be dropped off.

The Somerset County Division of Solid Waste Management is partnering with the county Road Divsion to collect old scrap tires, with or without rims, Monday, April 18, through Friday, April 22, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the South County Public Works Garage. The Garage is located at 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, NJ 08844.

Proper disposal of tires benefits communities. Scrap tires can collect standing water and attract mosquitoes in warm weather, which may carry the West Nile virus.

Tires also can be dropped off during the year at the county Recycling Center, located at 40 Polhemus Lane in Bridgewater, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., as part of the First Saturday of the Month drop-off program. Upcoming drop-off dates are April 2, May 7, June 4 and July 9.

The tire drop-off program is funded through a grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
