Tires for this purpose are to be considered automotive tires; car, truck, motorcycle, etc. (bicycle and garden tires are accepted as well, but without the fee). As per Oregon Revised Statutes, all tires are forbidden from entering a landfill in the State of Oregon.

All tires must be taken off the rim to be collected at a County facility. Some tire shops will take your tire on the rim but may charge a service fee to take it off the rim. Waste prevention tip: When you get new tires, allow the shop to keep your old tires for reuse or recycling.


Here in Douglas County, we have two facilities able to accept tires for recycling. The Roseburg Transfer Station and the Reedsport Transfer Station accepts your tires off the rim for a small fee. Bicycle and lawn equipment tires are exempt from the fee.

Accepted Items

The following items are accepted at the recycling facilities. Please remove the rim and recycle separately.

  • ATV Tires
  • Bicycle Tires
  • Car Tires
  • Motorcycle Tires
  • Truck Tires
