St. Louis County Sponsoring
March 28, 2015 - Saturday
Tire Recycling Event
Program Saves Landfill Space; Provides Fuel, Playground Cover, Sidewalk Tiles
On March 28 (a Saturday), St. Louis County residents can drop off old, damaged and/or unused tires at two different County parks: Bella Fontaine Park in North County and Sylvan Springs Park in South County.
In a program co-sponsored with Missouri’s Department of Natural Resources, St. Louis County’s Division of Neighborhood Services (Department of Public Works) will collect unwanted tires – at no cost to residents – and recycle them. Instead of being dumped in landfills, the tires will be recycled and processed into fuel for power plants. Recycled tires can also be turned into shock-absorbing playground cover, running tracks and sidewalk tiles.
Residents can drop off their tires between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at either park. Please see map below for addresses to the recreational facilities.
Please note however, that businesses involved in tire sales or recycling and trucking companies cannot participate in this program.
Tires of any size or condition, with or without wheels, will be accepted.
For more information, please contact Ms. Debbie Kricensky (the Division of Neighborhood Service’s Resource Coordinator) at 314-486-8906 or DKricensky@stlouisco.com.
