Modesto Tire Amnesty

City of Modesto Tire Amnesty Events

The City of Modesto recently received a Tire Amnesty Grant through CalRecycle. In an ongoing effort to encourage the residents of Modesto to recycle their waste tires we will be offering several free events throughout the next two years. With a coupon, City of Modesto residents will be able to recycle up to 9 tires, at no cost, per amnesty event. Tires will need to be taken to their local waste hauler, Bertolotti Disposal Service or Gilton Resource Recovery Facility.

Coupons will be available upon request through the City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Department located at 1010 Tenth Street, 4th floor, Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department in downtown Modesto. The office is open from 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday to distribute coupons (except holidays). Proof of City of Modesto residency required to receive coupon. Limit 1 coupon per household, per event. In addition, we will be available by phone to answer any specific questions about the program or eligibility by calling (209) 577-5494.
