Rapid City landfill to offer free residential tire disposal

Posted:

The Rapid City landfill plans to roll-out a new tire collection program at the end of November. Solid Waste Superintendent, Karl Merbach says the state of South Dakota has $100,000 allotted for the residential only program.

At Tuesday's Public Works meeting, Merbach said residents who were discouraged about properly discarding of their tires in the past due to a fee, can soon take advance of the free program.  He says the collection program will make all of Pennington County cleaner and more slightly. The solid waste superintendent says tires can cause potential fire hazards, as well as fill with water and breathe mosquitoes.

The main cost of the program will be the proper disposal of tires.  Merbach says the landfill could collect the rubber tires but could not bury them in the landfill due to its permit.  So the landfill will have to send them off to a disposal site to get them properly discarded.

More details on the free tire disposal program are expected to be revealed next week.
