2017 Free Tire Recycling Weeks  April 17–21   &   September 18–22
Outagamie County Recycling & Solid Waste sponsors two free tire disposal weeks for all Outagamie County municipalities.

Only Outagamie County “municipalities” may bring tires to our drop-off site during normal business hours free of charge.  Individual “residents” coming to the drop-off site will be charged our regular tire disposal rates.

This program accepts tires 18” or less in size and limits 4 tires per household. Tires exceeding 18” in size will be charged $4.00 per tire or $150.00 per ton.

This program is for households only. NO BUSINESS TIRES ARE ACCEPTED.
