Waste Tire Amnesty Events

About the Program

The City of Modesto received a Waste Tire Amnesty Grant through CalRecycle and has several events planned in 2020 in an ongoing effort to encourage residents in Modesto to recycle their waste tires properly. With a coupon, City of Modesto residents will be able to recycle up to nine tires, at no cost, per each amnesty event date listed below.  To participate, residents will self-haul their car, truck or motorcycle tires to our local waste hauler, Bertolotti Disposal. We do not accept tractor or commercial truck tires.


How to Get your Coupon

 Address verification will be required in order to receive a coupon.

  1. Coupons will be available upon request through the City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Division located at 1010 Tenth Street, 4th Floor, Public Works Department in downtown Modesto. The office is open from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM; Monday through Friday to distribute coupons (except holidays).
  2. You may call and request to have a coupon mailed to you directly.

If you have questions, we will be available by phone (209-577-5494) to answer any specific questions about the program or eligibility.
