Tire Disposal 101
ACUA will only accept tires from Atlantic County residents and businesses.
- Remove rims from tires. Rims can disposed of as metals.
- Tires must be separated from all other waste types when brought to ACUA so they can be taken out of the waste stream and recycled.
Please note: ACUA will not accept oversized and agricultural tires. An oversized tire is any tire greater than tractor trailer size, that is, any tire more than 4 ft. in diameter and/or more than 12 inches as measured across the tread. Contact the manufacturer or a store that sells tractor equipment to learn how to dispose.
Shredded tires may be disposed of as bulky waste.
