Waste Tire Amnesty Program

IVRMA implements a Waste Tire Amnesty Grant Program pursuant to Section 42889(e) of the Public Resources Code. The purpose of this program is to provide free and convenient waste tire collection events for the public to bring in their waste tires free of charge.

The Tire Amnesty Program is associated with the waste tires that are collected from residents for free in Imperial County in virtue of coordinated IVRMA community clean-up events.

Waste Tire Clean-Up Program

IVRMA persists in increasing the collection of waste tires from Imperial County residents to reduce the illegal dumping of tires. As a resident, you can also drop off residential waste tires at our HHW facilities. See our HHW Program page for facility locations and available dates for drop-offs. If a resident has more than 9 tires to drop off at any of our community events or HHW facilities, please contact our Local Enforcement Agency, Raul Martinez to receive a permit at 442-265-1888.
