These events are now completed.
Thank you to all who have dropped off tires. We collected over 3200 tires for recycling!
We would like to thank all the volunteers who have helped make these possible: Denise, Fred, Emily, Kris (who worked 3 events!), Nate, Stan, Jim and Jeff. Gull Lake High School footbal team members: Carson, Robert, Aaron, Nicholas, Colin & Andrew. Vicksburg Rotary Club members: Don, Jim & David. Also a shout out to Di'Shun, Maria & Brandon - our partners at NRCS.
The Kalamazoo Conservation District is providing scrap tire collections at no cost to Kalamazoo County residents. The tires that are collected will be recycled and used in roads, driveways, trails, and a variety of other products.
Appointments are required and can be made by completing this form. Kalamazoo County residents can sign up for any of the events and must provide proof of county residency. Each household may sign up to drop off up to 10 passenger tires. The 10-tire limit per resident will allow more county households to be able to participate. Please note that there is also a 10-tire transportation limit set by the Michigan Department of Transportation. Only passenger tires with rims removed will be collected and no businesses are allowed to participate.
