Farmers can recycle unwanted farm tires

The agricultural community will have an opportunity to recycle unwanted farm tires through a collection sponsored by the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District. This collection is open to farm owners and operators in the three county area (including Bellevue and Fostoria residents). No dealers or agri-business tires will be permitted.

Pre-registration is required. Registration will begin Monday, Aug. 12 at 8 a.m. and end Friday, Aug. 23 at 4:30 p.m. Prior to calling, know the number of tires by type/size that you would like to recycle. When the office is contacted, a representative from the District will provide you with a date and time to deliver your tires and confirm the cost based on the quantity and height of tires being recycled.

Measure the tire from the ground to the top of the tire. All participants must bring proof of residency (driver’s license) to the collection site. Pre-register by calling the District’s main office at 419-334-7222 or 1-888-850-7224.

Tires up to 36 inches include implement tires, wagon tires, skid loader tires, most front tires and 4-wheeler tires will be accepted at a cost of $1 per tire. The district will accept farm tires 37 to 60 inches (most rear tractor & semi tires) at $10 per tire. Farm tires 61 inches and larger including large rear tractor tires and all combine tires (regardless of height) will also be accepted at $15 per tire. Tires with rims will be accepted, but not tubes.
