GET RID OF THAT SPARE TIRE! Landfill Hosting Free Tire Disposal Week Sept. 27-Oct. 2

TIME TO GET RID

OF THAT SPARE TIRE!

RAPID CITY LANDFILL HOSTING

FREE TIRE DISPOSAL WEEK SEPT. 27-OCT. 2

More than 341 TONS of tires

were collected at 2018 event

RAPID CITY, SD—The City Landfill hopes to collect tons of tires later this month.

Rapid City Solid Waste officials remind the public of a free opportunity to get rid of those unwanted tires packed in the garage, back yard or side of the house.  A week-long free tire disposal event is scheduled at the Rapid City Landfill September 27 through October 2 for residential customers. The $240 per ton disposal fee will be waived during this time.

            In October, 2018, the last time the City hosted a tire disposal event, more than 341 tons – or approximately 28,000 tires – were brought to the Landfill during a week-long event.

            “Tires are constantly being dumped within the Black Hills and around Rapid City,” said Ria Harper of the Solid Waste Division.  “We’ve had great participation at past tire disposal events and this is a great opportunity to get those tires to the landfill instead of taking up space in the garage or yard, or dumped along the roadside or field.”

            There is no limit to the number or size of tires that can be dropped off by residents.

            For more information, contact the Solid Waste Division at 355-3496.
