Tired of tires?

Tuesday, April 3, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

For those hanging on to gross old tires, the city is offering a way out. Instead of keeping the tires and breeding “more than 10,000 adult mosquitoes” per tire, why not partake in Austin’s newest holiday: Tire Take-Back Day? On Saturday, April 14, Austinites can recycle their old tires for free from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Austin Resource Recovery (2514 Business Center Drive) or Great Hills Baptist Church (10500 Jollyville Road). Austin Public Health, Austin Resource Recovery and Travis County will be on hand to take up to eight passenger tires per household.
