Free Tire Drop-off Available to
Somerset County Farmers, Residents
April 20 – 24 in Hillsborough
Hillsborough - Somerset County residents and farmers will have an opportunity to remove unwanted tires from their property as soon as possible because of the potential for standing water to attract mosquitoes as we head into another season where West Nile virus may be a concern.
The Somerset County Division of Solid Waste Management is partnering with the county Road Department to collect old scrap tires, with or without rims, Monday, April 20 through Friday, April 24, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the South County Public Works Garage. The Garage is located at 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough, 08844.
The program is free and residents can drop off up to eight tires per household. The drop-off program is funded through a grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
Tires also can be dropped off at the county Recycling Center, located at 40 Polhemus Lane in Bridgewater, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., as part of the First Saturday of the Month Drop-Off Program. The next drop-off dates are April 11 and May 2.
Proper disposal of tires benefits communities. Scrap tires can collect standing water and attract mosquitoes when the weather is warm, which may carry the West Nile virus.
