WASTE TIRE COLLECTION SITE
Arizona Revised Statutes prohibits the disposal of any waste tires in landfills and requires that each county provides at least one facility for the disposal of waste tires. Yuma County operates its waste tire collection site (WTCS) in the North Gila Valley. It is located on County 5th St., one mile east of Avenue 7E (Laguna Dam Road).
Monies for the operational cost and expenses of the WTCS comes from the environmental fee charged for the sale of new motor vehicle tires, and tipping fees. The environmental fees are collected by the state and distributed to each county based upon the number of registered vehicles in that county. Residents are allowed to dispose of five (5) tires per year from their personal vehicles at no cost, all other deliveries will be assessed a tipping fee.
