Box Butte County residents will be able to dispose of old, used tires for free again this year during a Tire Amnesty event being held this spring by the City of Alliance.

After collecting 500 tons of old rubber last year, this year’s event, which runs March 31 through April 21, will collect up to an estimated 800 tons of tires at the Alliance Landfill on Kansas Street.

This year’s event will be held from Friday, March 31st – Friday, April 21st. Hours of operation will be Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm, Saturday, 8:00am – 3:00pm, Closed Sunday.

Since the limit was met quickly last year, drop-offs will be allowed on the following schedule:

  • 2-axle vehicles only – March 31st – April 7th
  • 4-axle vehicles only – April 7th – April 14th
  • Open to all – April 14th – April 21st

There will be no charge for tires for the public during this time. No tires will be accepted from participants who have accepted fees to accumulate tires. Tires must be removed from their rims before being accepted. Amnesty will be discontinued after our qualified limit has been reached.

For more information about this event, please contact the Landfill at (308) 762-2705.
