Waste Tire Collection


The Manitowoc County Recycling Center has extended the dates of the annual tire collection event to end on October 7th. While it was originally advertised to go until September 23rd, the scheduled cleanout was delayed and there is ample space in the tire drop off area for additional tires. If you still have tires to clean out this is a good time to get rid of them.

This program allows Manitowoc County residents and businesses to properly dispose of their tires at a reduced rate. This program started in 1998 and has since collected approximately 3.35 million pounds of waste tires. Help make 2017 a record breaking year by bringing in your unwanted tires.

For more information call the Recycling Center at 920-683-4333 or visit http://www.co.manitowoc.wi.us/departments/q-z/recycling-center/tires/.
