Recycle Old Tires – It’s Free!

Get rid of those illegal, unhealthy and unsightly piles of tires today.

NRWS has partnered with the City and County of Napa to provide a FREE waste tire amnesty period August 1–30, 2021 for NRWS customers.

You can help to make sure these tires are recycled properly instead of becoming breeding grounds for mosquitoes or fire hazards.

Together we can make a difference! The coupon authorizes the transportation of up to 19 tires for free recycling. The regular recycling price for tires 22” or less in rim size diameter is $5 per tire.

PLEASE NOTE: All passenger and light truck tires 22” or less in rim size diameter will be accepted. Tires can remain on the metal rims.

LIMIT ONE COUPON PER TRIP!

REMEMBER: You must comply with the law when hauling waste tires. With this coupon in your possession, you may haul and recycle no more than 19 tires. This offer is available to residential and non tire-dealer commercial customers only during the amnesty period of August 1-30, 2021.

To get a coupon, contact NRWS/NCRWS at (707) 255-5200.

PLEASE NOTE: City coupons are only good for the month of August, County coupons are good all year!

Recycling & Composting Saves

Recycling and composting are easy and efficient methods to save energy, create jobs and reduce the production of greenhouse gases.

In 2020, almost 170,000 tons of materials were recycled or composted at the Napa Recycling & Composting Facility.

By keeping these valuable resources out of the landfill, we decreased carbon dioxide emissions by 150,652 metric tons and used 906,065 million fewer BTUs of energy. This is enough energy to power all the houses in Napa for four months.

Additionally, these savings are the equivalent of taking 31,986 passenger cars off the road and conserving over 17 million gallons of gasoline, helping to fight climate change and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.

And, they provide for over 350 full-time jobs across the recycling, composting and reuse economy!*
