Tire Dumping

The City of Dayton and Montgomery County are working together to stop illegal tire dumping, but we need everyone’s help. Dumped tires are a serious problem because they are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and rodents, create a fire hazard, attract other illegal dumping, and are difficult to remove. It’s also very costly to clean-up dumped tires and can delay mowing efforts on vacant lands. If you see someone hauling more than 10 tires or illegally dumping tires, contact the “Report-A-Litterer” line. Try to get the license plate number, make of the vehicle, time of day, location, and date. You can send it in online or by phone at 225-4999. Anyone with scrap tires to get rid of should call the City of Dayton Bulky Waste number at 333-4800 and they will pick-up up to 10 tires per household a year for free. In addition, Montgomery County residents can drop off up to 10 tires per resident a year for free at the Solid Waste District Transfer Station at 2550 Sandridge Dr.
