City to hold scrap tire collection 

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — the City will be holding a free scrap tire collection on Friday, July 31, at 150 S. Kendall St. 

This collection is open to City of Battle Creek residents ONLY who need to dispose of unwanted passenger vehicle tires.  Rims MUST be removed. This collection will not accept commercial business tires, or oversized tires including: semi-trailer, tractor, or loader tires.

The collection will take place from 4 -7 p.m. on Friday, July 31.  We will have one semi-trailer at the event, and the event will end when the trailer is full or at 7 p.m.  There will be no early drop-offs for this event. This will be held at the city’s Department of Public Works, 150 S. Kendall St.

Because high attendance is expected and COVID-19 precautions are necessary, please plan ahead and stay in your car when it is being unloaded by volunteers and wear a mask while sitting in your car.

Only 10 tires per vehicle, please. Hauling more than 10 tires requires a scrap tire hauling registration through the State of Michigan. To find out more information on this please visit:,4671,7-180-24786-245022--,00.html
