City of Modesto Waste Tire Amnesty Events

The City of Modesto is nearing the end of a two-year Waste Tire Amnesty Grant received through CalRecycle which concludes on June 30, 2015.  In an ongoing effort to encourage the residents of Modesto to recycle their waste tires we will be offering two upcoming opportunities. For the entire month of June, with a coupon, City of Modesto residents will be able to recycle up to 9 tires (no commercial or tractor tires eligible), at no cost. Tires will need to be self-hauled to their local waste hauler, Bertolotti Disposal Service or Gilton Resource Recovery Facility.

Coupons will be available upon request through the City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Department located at 1010 Tenth Street, 4th floor, Public Works Department in downtown Modesto. The office is open from 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday to distribute coupons (except holidays). Address verification is required to receive a coupon. Limit 1 coupon per household. In addition, we are taking requests by phone to mail out a coupon or answer any specific questions about the program or eligibility by calling (209) 577-5494.

Also, we have a Waste Tire Amnesty scheduled for Saturday, June 6th from 9:00am-1:00pm at the Church of Latter-day Saints parking lot located at 731 El Vista Avenue in Modesto. The same conditions apply as listed above. The event is open to Modesto residents and there is a limit of 1 coupon per household and valid for up to 9 car, truck or motorcycle tires. No commercial or tractor tires please.
