Public Works staff will be accepting tires from passenger cars and trucks at the City of Nome landfill at mile 4 of the Beam Road between August 8th and 22nd free of charge between the hours of 10am and 4pm.

The tires will need to have the rims removed prior to acceptance. The shredded tires will be used as landfill cover. City staff will only be operating the shredder for a short time this year and hope to see a number of tires removed from around the city.

Equipment tires will not be a part of this effort and should go to the monofill, located on Center Creek Road.
