Somerset County to Hold Free Tire Drop-off Event, April 19 to 23

HILLSBOROUGH, NJ –  Farmers and residents can dispose of unwanted tires, free-of-charge, from Monday, April 19  to Friday, April 23 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the South County Public Works Garage located at 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, NJ 08844.


Proper disposal of tires can help protect communities by preventing illness and injury. Scrap tires can collect standing water and attract mosquitoes in warm weather, which may carry the West Nile virus. Scrap tires can present tripping hazards when covered with leaves or snow.


Throughout the year, tires can also be dropped off at the Somerset County Recycling Center, located at 40 Polhemus Lane in Bridgewater, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the “First Saturday of the Month” drop-off program. For more information about First Saturday Drop Off events, visit
