It's Time for Another Tire Roundup!

Do you have tires that you've been looking to get rid of in an environmentally-friendly way?

The city's Division of Waste Management will be hosting a Tire Roundup event beginning Thursday, October 1st and lasting through Saturday, October 3rd. This event will be held as a joint effort of the City of Lexington and the Kentucky Division of Waste Management.

The tire collection event will take place at the old landfill site at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Residents, farmers and businesses that generate less than 5% of their revenues from tire sales are eligible to drop off tires at the event; no tire retailers are permitted.

Tires that will be accepted at the event include: passenger tires on or off the rim, agricultural, bicycle, motorcycle, go-cart, ATV, tractor and trailer tires.

Tires that will NOT be accepted at the event include: tires with beads greater than 1 3/4 inches, calcium or otherwise filled tires, solid tires, large OTR tires, tracks and sheet rubber.

Our vision

Whether it's recyclables that we can use again, yard waste that we can turn into mulch, or items we haul to the landfill, we are always looking for ways to keep the Bluegrass beautiful. Our work is not just about getting rid of things, it's about Lexington's quality of life, its health, and the look of our community.
