Where can I recycle tires?
You can recycle tires for free at Solid Waste Management District of St. Joseph County located at 828 Kerr St. South Bend, IN (near Sample and Chapin).
What happens after you notify 311 of tires that have been dumped?
The 311 liaison will notify the Department of Code Enforcement. Then a Code Enforcement inspector will investigate the situation to determine if the tires were illegally dumped.
If the property owner is cited for the tires, they will have 10 days to remove them from the date of citation. After 10 days has passed, the inspector will follow up and if they are not removed the NEAT crew will be assigned to pick up the tires.
Tires dumped in the public right of way (alley, street, sidewalk) are picked up on a semi-regular basis by the NEAT crew.
