The Kearney Area Solid Waste Agency Landfill will accept tires free of charge from residents of Buffalo County September 17th through October 1, 2016.  This opportunity for free tire disposal is funded by a grant secured by the City of Kearney from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality Scrap Tire Reduction Fund.  The grant allows the landfill to accept up to 300 tons of tires. Once that tonnage has been reached, Landfill fees for tire disposal will be reinstated.  Residents of Buffalo County can take tires to the landfill located at 6711 West 56th Street, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Sunday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  Tires that contain rims or tires that originate from tire retailers or businesses that have charged or collected fees to accept scrap tires are not eligible.  Please remember to cover your load before traveling to the landfill in order to prevent littering.  If you have any questions, please contact the Utilities Department, Sanitation Division at 233-3206.
