(South Harrison Township, NJ) - Gloucester County Board of Commissioners Director Frank J. DiMarco declares March Tire Amnesty Month in Gloucester County.
Throughout the month of March, the Solid Waste Complex will be accepting free tire drop-offs from Gloucester County residents.
Director DiMarco said, "Discarded and forgotten tires can fill with standing water creating a breeding ground for mosquitos that can carry viruses such as the West Nile and Zika. By collecting tires from residents, we are able to properly discard them and reduce these diseases from being able to gain traction."
Residents can bring their tires to the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex at 493 Monroeville Rd. (Route 694) in South Harrison Township, March 1 through March 31, Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and during an event on Saturday, March 19 from 8 a.m. to noon.
There is a limit of 10 tires per residence. Nothing over a passenger pick-up truck tire size will be accepted. This program is for Gloucester County residents only. No commercial businesses will be accepted.
Residents who need directions or have more than 10 tires please contact the GCIA/Office of Recycling at (856) 478-6045.
