Scrap Tire Collection Events

The Kalamazoo Conservation District is once again 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 may be asked to provide proof of county residency.  Please note that there is a 10-tire transportation limit set by the Michigan Department of Transportation. Only unpainted passenger tires with rims removed will be collected and no businesses are allowed to participate.


There are three event dates and locations (sign up link below):


  • June 14, 2023: 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the City of Kalamazoo parking lot located at 322 Stockbridge Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49001

Funding for the Scrap Tire Collection Events is provided by the EGLE Scrap Tire Grant and the Kalamazoo Conservation District. Partners include the City of Kalamazoo, Schoolcraft Township, and Perkins Tire Service.


This is a free event but donations would be kindly accepted at the events to continue conservation efforts.
