Scrap Tire Collection To Be Held September 14

August 12, 2019

The Lower Loup Natural Resources District has been awarded a 2019 Waste Reduction and Recycling Incentive Grant - Scrap Tire Cleanup from the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy. The grant will fund a tire collection coordinated by the Loup Basin RC&D.

The Scrap Tire Collection will be held Saturday, September 14, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. only, at the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway, 330 South Highway 11 in Burwell – south of Longhorn Lanes, across the highway east of the Burwell Jr. Sr. High School. Tires on rims and tires for which a disposal fee has already been received will not be accepted at the collection and are not eligible for this grant. Tires of all sizes: tractor, combine, pivot, truck and auto tires will be accepted. Veterans will be taking the following information from those bringing in tires: name, address, phone number, number of tires and from where the tires came: farm, home, shop, etc.

The Scrap Tire Collection is for the residents of Blaine, Boone, Custer, Garfield, Greeley, Holt, Howard, Loup, Rock, Sherman, Thomas, Valley and Wheeler Counties in Nebraska. Area Future Farmers of America will be helping with the unloading of the tires and a free will donation will be given to the chapters.

The recycling end use market will determine how the tires from the tire collection cleanup event will be used. Potential uses include feed bunks, park benches, picnic tables, and alternative cover for landfills. The Scrap Tire Cleanup is sponsored by the Loup Basin Resource, Conservation and Development Council (RC&D), Lower Loup Natural Resources District, Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy, and the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway. The event flyer is available here.  For more information contact Janet Sanders, Executive Director, Loup Basin RC&D Council at (308) 346-3393, email at or stop by the office at the 330 South Highway 11, Burwell.
