For household hazardous waste and pollution prevention presentations:
People living in Ramona and the surrounding areas can drop off their old tires, for free on Saturday, June 10th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Tires must be relatively clean and be from passenger vehicles. Large truck tires and tires from businesses or commercial sources will not be accepted. A limited number of tires with rims will be accepted, please call to request preapproval for tires with rims and for loads of more than 9 tires.
