Water Quality District - Hazardous Waste
What is the Problem?
Disposing of tires on private property, or public lands creates hazards and is unsightly. When left outside, tires can provide a breeding place for mosquitoes. Mosquitos can carry West Nile Virus. Stockpiled tires also present a potential fire hazard. Properly dispose of old tires to eliminate this potential mosquito habitat and fire hazard.
- If repair is not an option, bring old tires to the place of purchase.
