The Garrett County Department of Solid Waste and Recycling will host a Citizen Scrap Tire Drop-Off Event on Saturday, September 16, 2023. At the Garrett County Fairgrounds, beginning at 7:00 a.m., the event will last until all the receptacles are full.
During the one-day event, Garrett County residents may bring up to 10 passenger tires or light truck tires (on or off the rim) to recycle. The tires must be free of dirt, mud, leaves, or water. Also, please bring assistance to unload heavy tires if needed.
A residential trash permit is not required to participate in the event. However, all citizens dropping off tires are required to show a valid driver’s license proving Garrett County residency.
The event will take place in the upper parking lot located off Mosser Road. All vehicles will enter Gate #1 on Mosser Road and vehicles will be checked-in and sent to a designated lane for depositing the tires; residents will then be directed to Gate #2 to exit the fairgrounds. Carpooling is encouraged.
Citizen Scrap Tire Drop-Off Events are sponsored by the Maryland Environmental Service and are funded through the Maryland Department of the Environment’s Scrap Tire Fund. The fund was established by the General Assembly in 1991 as part of the Scrap Tire Recycling Act.
