2014 Tire Amnesty Day

Our annual Tire Amnesty Day, along with ongoing efforts with the Fort Wayne Street and Allen County Highway Departments, allow residents and neighborhood associations the opportunity to rid themselves of used tires in a responsible manner.

Millions of scrap tires sit in stock piles across Indiana. These tire piles are aesthetically displeasing, act as breeding grounds for mosquitoes, and can potentially fuel dangerous fires.
