Riverside County Landfills

Tires are accepted only at the Badlands, Blythe, and Lamb Canyon landfills for recycling. Tires may be on or off rims.  Residents and businesses may haul no more than nine (9) tires per trip due to permitting restrictions and recycling facility restraints.  Any tire loads greater than nine (9) tires will be directed to a Tire Recycling Facility for proper disposal.  Tires are accepted with the following restrictions:
  • Tires cannot exceed 4 feet in diameter and/or 200 lbs each.
  • Tires may not be delivered commingled with other solid waste. When tires arrive to the Department landfills comingled with other solid waste, the customer must separate them and place them in the designated tire storage area.
  • Loads of tires may be refused at any time to prevent the landfill from exceeding maximum tire storage limits. Department landfills may not store more than 500 tires at any one time. For this reason, commercial tire haulers should  haul their tires directly to a tire recycling facility listed above.
