Tire Collection


Residents of Moore County can bring up to five tires for free disposal at the Moore County Landfill.

Scrap Tire Certification

The North Carolina Division of Waste Management administers a comprehensive program to manage scrap tires. This program prevents the illegal dumping of tires by providing an infrastructure to safely collect, store, and recycle scrap tires.

An advance disposal fee is charged when new tires are sold. The proceeds are distributed to each county to pay for the collection and recycling of tires.

Residents can bring up to 5 tires a day to our landfill (free of charge). Rims must be removed.

Businesses can bring tires for free under the certification program if state regulations are followed. 

  • Haul your own tires? Bring a copy of your current business license, along with your federal tax ID number, to the facility on your first visit.
  • You are required to complete and sign a Scrap Tire Certification Form for each load of tires. 
  • Haul your own tires? Fill out the Generator and Hauler portions of the Form.
