TIRE AMNESTY DAY EVENTS

Several times each year and in various places around the City, Community Revitalization sponsors a "Waste Tire Amnesty Day" event. This event is made possible through a grant from the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB). The Community Revitalization Division has held an average of four events per year since beginning in 2005. More than 15,000 tires have been collected and over 4,000 residents have taken part in the events, bringing in an average of six tires each. The events are intended to prevent illegal tire dumping, divert waste tires from landfills, and help educate the public about waste tire recycling and proper tire maintenance.

RAISING PUBLIC AWARENESS 

 ...... and mitigating the adverse environmental impacts created by unlawful dumping or storage of waste tires, are the ultimate purposes of such events. Removing waste tires from local neighborhoods promotes public health and safety while contributing to the beautification of our City.
