  • No tires will be accepted from businesses or dealers.
  • Only car and light truck tires will be accepted.
  • Maximum of nine (9) car or light truck tires per vehicle.  (It is a violation of CA Vehicle Code to transport 10 or more tires at a time.)

Tires from businesses or dealers will not be accepted.  In addition, shredded tires, pieces of tires, and tires filled with dirt will not be accepted.  Large truck tires, off-road vehicle tires, and tires from other machinery will not be accepted.

The Tire Amnesty event is being conducted as part of the “Earth Day at the MRF” event at the Victor Valley MRF.  In addition to the free tire disposal, there will be free confidential document destruction, a free mulch giveaway, MRF tours, and vendors and displays about recycling and water conservation.
