Free disposal of up to eight passenger tires will also be available for residential customers only. Proof of residential address is required to receive this service. All other tires will be charged for at the regular rate. Additional passenger car tires up to 17 inches will cost $2 for disposal. Truck tires 17 to 24 inches will cost $9. Motorgrader and front end loader tires will cost $60, and farm equipment (tractor) tires will cost $75.
The transfer station and tree limb disposal area will both be open Tuesday-Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
