Tires are a valuable resource that should never be landfilled or incinerated. Howard County manages used tires by sending reusable ones to a tire reseller & the remainder to a recycler who shreds tires for use on athletic fields, playgrounds, arenas, or engineering projects.
We accept 4 tires per year for free from residents. If you have more than 4 tires to recycle in one year, call us at 410-313-6444 for assistance.
In 2019, 251.53 tons of tires were handled through the Alpha Ridge Landfill.
