It’s time for some Spring cleaning

Jan. 24, 2019 - Tire collection events offer opportunity to dispose of scrap tires

If I have some scrap tires at home where can I get rid of them?

If you have some tires lying around, now is the time to get rid of them. You may be able to dispose of them during a bulky trash collection event or at a tire collection event sponsored by your local council of governmentExit the TCEQ 

If you have many tires, you may need to hire a scrap-tire transporter to pick them up and haul them to an authorized scrap-tire storage, processing, or disposal facility.

Someone has dumped tires in my yard. What should I do?

The best way to report abandoned tires is to contact your local city or county authorities. You can also contact the TCEQ field office for your region, or file a complaint online with the TCEQ.
