Westmoreland County Holds Special April 9 Recycling Event For Scrap Tires; Volunteers Needed

Westmoreland Conservation District and Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling will hold a Scrap Tire Collection Event on April 9 at the Westmoreland Cleanways Recycling Center, 355 Pleasant Unity Mutual Road in Greensburg from 8:30 a.m. to Noon.

Scrap tires are an open invitation for unwelcome visitors – mosquitos – to take up residence in your backyard. 

But you can clear out those tires before they become homes for these annoying, biting insects that can carry West Nile virus and other diseases: Just bring them to a special recycling event on Saturday morning, April 9.

All types of tires are accepted and eligible for a special $1-off recycling discount.  Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.

Tire recycling costs are based on the type of tire (passenger, light truck, tractor trailer, agricultural/farm tractor, highway/construction/heavy equipment). 

Business and member discounts do not apply during the April 9 special tire recycling event.

For more information, go to the Bulletin Board item at the Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling website.

Volunteers Needed

Last year, 800 tires were collected during this event!  That was a great success.  And a lot of work for limited staff.

If you are 18 years or older, able to lift 25-50 pounds, and can volunteer a few hours on April 9, we’d love to have your help.  

Please register first by contacting Chelsea at by April 6.  We’ll give you more details on where to arrive and what to wear when you contact us.
