Get Rid of Your Spare Tires

Beginning November 11, 2017

Residents of Lake County are eligible to dispose of up to 9 passenger or light truck tires per month free of charge until grant funds are exhausted. Tires cannot exceed R19.5 in size. Tires will be accepted with and without rims.

Residents may take their tires to either the Southlake Refuse recycling yard at the entrance to the Eastlake Landfill on Davis Street in Clearlake or to the Lake County Waste Solutions transfer station at 230 Soda Bay Road in Lakeport.

Customers will be asked to show proof of Lake County residency and sigh a form showing numbers and origin of tires. No commercial tire, auto repair or salvage businesses.

It's the Law!
California law prohibits anyone from hauling more than 9 tires without a State permit. There may be exemptions for some cleanup projects. Contact us for information. Bigger tires or more than 9? Call (707) 262-1618 for disposal information.
