Tire Amnesty Begins September 1st
September is Tire Amnesty Month

(Port Orchard, WA)- Residents of Kitsap and North Mason Counties may bring their waste passenger vehicle tires to the Olympic View Transfer Station in Port Orchard during regular business hours during the month of September for free recycling.

This amnesty applies only to the Olympic View Transfer Station. Tire recycling is not available at the other Recycling and Garbage Facilities. If you have more than 50 tires, call 360-337-4898 for instructions.

When: Month of September, 8 am – 5pm daily
Where: Olympic View Transfer Station ONLY; 9300 SW Barney White Rd, Port Orchard, (near the Bremerton Airport)
Limit: Up to 10 tires, from cars or small/standard pick-up trucks only, per visit, on or off rim, will be accepted at no charge.
Restrictions:

  • Loads containing more than 10 tires will be charged $1 each after
    the first 10
  • No bicycle or wheelbarrow tires, or other small tires
  • Oversized tires will be charged the regular rate
  • Commercial customers will be charged the regular rate

The program is made available from the Washington State Department of Ecology to assist local governments with tire-related clean-up projects. The purpose is to clean up accumulations of old tires on people’s properties which create an eyesore and/or mosquito breeding grounds, or habitat for rodents.

The collection event is sponsored by Kitsap Count Public Works, Washington State Department of Ecology and Waste Management, Inc.
