City of Modesto Tire Amnesty Events


The City of Modesto received a Tire Amnesty Grant through CalRecycle and has six events planned in 2014 in an ongoing effort to encourage residents in Modesto to recycle their waste tires properly. With a coupon, City of Modesto residents will be able to recycle up to 9 tires, at no cost, per each amnesty event. Tires will need to be taken to their local waste hauler, Bertolotti Disposal or Gilton Resource Recovery.

 

Coupons will be available upon request through the City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Department located at 1010 Tenth Street, 4th floor, Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department in downtown Modesto. The office is open from 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday to distribute coupons (except holidays). Proof of City of Modesto residency required to receive a coupon. Limit 1 coupon per household, per event. In addition, we will be available by phone to answer any specific questions about the program or eligibility by calling (209) 577-5494.
