March is Tire Amnesty month

(South Harrison Township, NJ) Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger is pleased to announce that the Gloucester County Improvement Authority Office of Recycling, in cooperation with the Board of Chosen Freeholders, will be conducting another Tire Amnesty Program in March.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, "With the success of last year's tire collection event, the Gloucester County Improvement Authority Office of Recycling is excited to announce that they will once again be hosting tire drop-off events throughout the month of March to allow residents to get rid of old and used tires.

“Discarded tires can fill with water and that can be prime breeding grounds for mosquitos, which can carry West Nile and Zika viruses and many other diseases. By providing this program we are preventing abandoned tires from harming the environment around our residents."

Residents can bring their tires to the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex at 493 Monroeville Rd. (Route 694) in South Harrison Township, March 1 through March 29, Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and during an event on Saturday, March 17 from 8 a.m to noon.

Tires may be on or off the rim, but must be separated by type. There is a limit of 25 tires per residence. Nothing over a passenger pick-up truck tire size will be accepted. This program is for Gloucester County residents only. No commercial businesses will be accepted.

Residents who need directions or have more than 25 tires please contact: the GCIA/Office of Recycling at (856) 478-6045
