Somerset County to Hold Free Tire Drop-off Event on Oct. 17 to 21
HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – Somerset County Deputy Director Melonie Marano, recycling liaison, encourages residents and farmers to dispose of any unwanted tires, free-of-charge, from Monday, Oct. 17, through Friday, Oct. 21, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the South County Public Works Garage located at 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. Up to eight tires per household can be dropped off.
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. In the autumn and winter, they present a tripping hazard when covered with leaves or snow.
Tires can also be dropped off during the year at the Somerset County Recycling Center, located at 40 Polhemus Lane in Bridgewater, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., as part of the “First Saturday of the Month” drop-off program.

The Tire Drop-Off Program is made possible by the Somerset County Division of Solid Waste Management and the Somerset County Road Department. The program is funded through a grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
