Stockton Tire and Recycling Disposal

Beginning back in October of 2010 the Department of Planning and Public Works which is a Division of Integrated Waste Management hosted a free tire recycling event. This was funded by a grant provided by the department a resources recycling and recovery. Over the course of the next several months five separate tire recycling events were held where a total of over 6,368 tires were collected by local residents and businesses. That’s great news for the Stockton area because it means that all of those tires didn’t end up in a landfill or dumped by the side of the road. Instead they were taken to a proper facility where they could be melted down and repurposed. But there was a problem that crept up and that was running out of grant money. In fact so many tires were brought to the previous events that last scheduled tire recycling event had to be canceled.
In order to compensate another event was scheduled but it also came with many restrictions. For instance the only tires that were accepted could only be tires from passenger cars, trucks or tractors that are with or without rims and are air filled with no solid areas. Heavy equipment tires were tires with a diameter greater than 60 inches or stacks of tires would not be accepted. And there are be no business waste tires allowed to be dropped off. In other words if you just had one tire then maybe you could get rid of it with this one day event. But what you’re supposed to do the rest of the year when you’ve got a tire to recycle? The answer to that is Junk King Stockton
