Ok....here's another chance to get rid of those old scrap tires before winter!

The City of Battle Creek will be holding a free scrap tire collection on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 150 S. Kendall St.

This collection is open to City of Battle Creek residents ONLY who need to dispose of unwanted passenger vehicle tires.  Rims MUST be removed. This collection will not accept commercial business tires, or oversized tires including: semi-trailer, tractor, or loader tires.

The collection will take place from 4 -7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8.  The city will have one semi-trailer at the event, and the event will end when the trailer is full or at 7 p.m.  There will be no early drop-offs for this event. This will be held at the city’s Department of Public Works, 150 S. Kendall St.

Only 10 tires per vehicle, please. Hauling more than 10 tires requires a scrap tire hauling registration through the State of Michigan. To find out more information on this please click here.
