Leon County’s 2021 Waste Tire Amnesty Days

March 10 – May 28

Leon County Government, in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), will once again host its Tire Amnesty Days event this spring after a record-setting collection event this past fall. From March 10 to May 28, citizens can drop off old tires for free at any County Solid Waste Facility. The event will be held across several weeks to allow for social distancing. 

Just one tire left in a backyard can become a hotspot for over 10,000 mosquitoes, which can carry diseases like Zika, West Nile and Dengue Fever. During Tire Amnesty Days, citizens can visit one of the County Waste Facilities to recycle their tires for free, not only keeping their back yard clean, but also helping prevent mosquito growth in their neighborhood one tire at a time.

Starting March 10, citizens can drop off tires at the Leon County Solid Waste Facility from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or at any of the Rural Waste Service Centers from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday-Sunday. All Leon County citizens who bring a valid ID verifying their County residence may participate.

Residents may dispose of up to 25 passenger car tires free of charge. Commercial loads will not be accepted. This event is for tires only. For more information, visit www.LeonCountyFL.gov/Mosquito

Mosquito Control Services

Mosquito Control services are available to all city and county residents. Direct services include inspections, larvicide applications, truck sprays and, where appropriate, placement of mosquito fish. 

For evening biting mosquitoes, large property or street spraying is the most efficient control method. 

All services are conducted at no cost.
