Recycle old tires for free Saturday

By
February 23, 2011 |

Yolo County residents are invited to dispose of their old tires at a free recycling event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at 815 W. Capitol Ave. in West Sacramento.

Used passenger car, truck or farm tractor tires will be accepted at this free event, made possible through a grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). Participants may bring in up to nine tires to be recycled free of charge. Tires must be air-filled and have no solid areas.

Not accepted are heavy equipment tires, tires with a diameter greater than 60 inches and bins full of tires.

Tires collected this month may end up as rubberized asphalt concrete or tire-derived aggregate in civil engineering projects throughout Yolo County.

Rubberized asphalt concrete is pavement material made with grounded waste tires, which is durable, safe and quiet, Yolo County spokeswoman Beth Gabor said. Tire-derived aggregate is the second largest reuse of tires in the U.S. and helps solve engineering problems where cost-effective lightweight and free-draining materials are needed, Gabor added.

CalRecycle’s “Green Roads” campaign raises awareness about these products and promotes the use of these two materials throughout the state. To learn more about “Green Roads,” visit http://www.PavingGreenRoads.com.

For more information, contact Pam Hedrick, Yolo County recycling coordinator, at (530) 666-8856. Farmers and ranchers may call the Yolo County Farm Bureau at (530) 662-6316 to obtain a hauler permit allowing for transport of up to 20 tires per vehicle.
