Manistee County Announces Scrap Tire Drop-off Event for 2023
Manistee County, MI – Manistee County Conservation District and Bay Area Recycling for Community will be providing another scrap tire disposal event this year.
The event will be held on July 29th 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, rain or shine at Bay Area Recycling for Community (BARC) located at 14407 Industrial Drive, Kaleva.
Whole scrap tires are banned from landfill disposal which causes many people to leave them on their property. Old tires hold water and act as breeding grounds for disease carrying mosquitos, are a fire safety hazard, and degrade the natural beauty of the county. The Manistee County scrap tire event provides an opportunity for residents to properly dispose of tires and improve the health, safety and appearance around their homes and community.
The event will be a first come first serve basis to Manistee County residents only for disposal of passenger and light duty truck tires; the grant does not cover tires from businesses and farms. To verify residency, identification such as a valid Michigan Driver’s License, State Issued ID, recent utility or tax bill is required to participate.
All tires must be clean and off the rim. A limit of ten (10) tires per vehicle per visit can be transported to the event; more than 10 tires requires a scrap tire hauler registration by the State of Michigan.
A fee of $2.00 per tire, cash only, will be collected at the time of drop-off to cover costs of planning, promotion, and event day expenses.
As a community partner for this event, Bay Area Recycling for Charities will be offering special drop-off hours and pricing for a variety of materials including mattresses, televisions, household batteries and more. Visit mybarc.org for full details.
