Prince George’s County Wants Your Old Tires at Scrap Tire Amnesty Day

The Prince George’s County Department of Environmental Resources’ (DER) Waste Management Division will hold a free, Scrap Tire Amnesty Day on Sunday, November 24 at the Brown Station Road Convenience Center in Upper Marlboro.  County residents are encouraged to bring any residential or agricultural tires, up to ten, for collection at the event.  Tires will not be accepted from businesses or dealers and participants must bring proof of County residency.
 

“Dumping tires in the woods or on the side of the road is harmful to the environment, contributes to blight in our communities and is illegal,” says DER Director Adam Ortiz.  “Our scrap tire recycling event will allow residents the opportunity to dispose of unwanted tires in a responsible manner.” 
 

Tires collected from Scrap Tire Amnesty Day may be recycled into usable products such as garden hoses, rubberized asphalt and playground cover
