New Amnesty Days kick off on September 6 & 7
In an effort to help our customers get rid of the more 'hard to recycle' items, we are kicking off the 2014/2015 Amnesty Days Calender starting with tires. On Saturday September 6 & Sunday September 7, 2014, customers have the opportunity to dispose of up to eight (8) passenger tires at NO CHARGE, each day to the Buckman Road Recycling & Transfer Station (BuRRT).
During this event, if you bring more than eight (8) passenger tires to BuRRT, the additional tires will be subject to our current fee of $2.00/tire.
It is Agency's intent to help reduce the number of illegally dumped tires through this program. Tires that are improperly disposed of can become the breeding ground for mosquitoes, and can cause diseases such as the West Nile Virus, to spread. Additionally, when a tire pile catches on fire, it is very difficult to put the fire out, putting the surrounding area at high risk.
