If you can't make the event or don't want to wait in long lines, there are many inexpensive tire disposal sites across the county. Find tire disposal sites.


​Customers must unload tires themselves.

Secure your load with straps, cords, or chains and cover your load with a tarp or cargo net.

In Washington State, the fine for transporting an unsecured load is $228. If an item falls off a vehicle and causes bodily harm, the driver faces gross misdemeanor charges and penalties of up to $5,000 and/or up to a year in prison.
