2019 Tire Round Up- Mooers

The Clinton County Soil & Water Conservation District and the Town of Mooers are working together to co-host a tire collection event.

This event is held to help Clinton County residents properly dispose of old used tires. Scrap tires can degrade, causing chemicals to leach into the soil and waterways and old tire dumps can provide fertile breeding grounds for mosquitos.

Time:       9:00 am until Noon

Place:      Town of Mooers Highway Department, Atlas Road, Mooers Forks 12959

Cost:  No Charge!     

Limit:  A strict limit of 10 tires per car/truck, but a waiting list will be compiled if there is room 

            for more

***Collection Ends when the Truck is full.  We cannot accept more tires than we have room***


NO tires on rims

NO tractor, loader or heavy equipment tires
NO solid rubber tires

The District reserves the right to reject non-passenger and non-pick-up truck tires. Our primary targets are residential passenger and pick-up tires, normally referred to as R13, R14, R15, R16, R17 and R18 sizes.   Our size limits HEIGHT, not its “R.”
