Recycle your scrap tires to help reduce waste in our landfills.  Los Angeles County generates over 10 million waste tires annually.  Stray tires cause urban blight and act as a nesting area for vectors and mosquitoes, which threaten public health.  The County provides free tire collection events for residents to recycle their waste tires.  Commercial recyclers also exist to process waste tires from residents and businesses. The tires are often recycled into rubberized asphalt and slurry for street rehabilitation projects, where the County has partnered with CalRecycle.
