TIRE RECYCLING COLLECTION EVENT

    

City of Calabasas Environmental Services Division and Los Angeles County Public Works Department will jointly host a free tire recycling collection event on March 21, 2009 from 9 am to 3 pm. It will be held at the dirt lot next to the Mobil gas station at 4830 Las Virgenes Road behind the fence of the 101 Southbound onramp. Take the Las Virgenes exit off the 101 (map).

The collection event is open to Los Angeles County residents only. No tires from businesses. Participants will receive a 15 percent discount coupon on their next purchase of Bridgestone or Firestone tires. Visit LA County Public Works for more information about the event.

An estimated 1.5 million waste tires have been illegally dumped or stockpiled in California. Proper disposal reduces the threat to public health, safety, and the environment. Recycled tires can be incorporated in rubberized asphalt concrete. This road material can reduce costs, noise, and environmental impact.

Visit the California Integrated Waste Management Board for more information on tires.
