Free tire recycling event in Plumas County

Someday, Plumas County residents may drive on roads they helped create through a tire-recycling event scheduled Saturday, Nov. 6, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Plumas residents are encouraged to turn in old tires during the event at the Plumas County Department of Public Works office in East Quincy. Each resident can bring up to nine tires for recycling free of charge.

“Recent events collected 789 tires in the Graeagle area and 1,495 tires in the Indian Valley area.  We are hoping for another great turnout. The Indian Valley community event was overwhelming, people were hauling tires in from the forest, the valley, the creeks as well as their neighbors’ backyard,” said Phyllis Taddei, fiscal officer and grant administrator.

“With every tire brought in, the community is doing their part for the environment, and not only keeping our county safe from the dangers and health hazards of stockpiled tires, but putting those tires to a better use.”

Tires collected from the event may end up as rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) or tire-derived aggregate (TDA) in civil engineering projects throughout the county.

RAC is pavement material made with shredded scrap tires that is more durable, safer and quieter than traditional asphalt.

TDA is the second largest reuse of tires in the U.S. and helps solve a number of engineering problems where cost-effective lightweight and free-draining materials are needed.

CalRecycle, also known as the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, has just launched “Green Roads,” a program to raise awareness about the products and promote their use throughout California.
