The City of York’s Curbside Collections Contract and the City’s Codified Ordinances, Article 951 limit the collection of passenger tires from ONLY Residential Units. Residential customer units may place up to 2 passenger tires, off the rim, for regular trash collection. Each tire replaces a bag of trash and counts toward the overall bag limit.
This should be an occasional occurrence for a residential customer to have replaced tires on their vehicle. If a resident’s tires are on the rim, they must be scheduled for large-item collection by calling the City’s Large-Item Service at 717-843-1240 about a week in advance. Large Item scheduling is available Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. or customers may leave a message after hours and staff will return your call on their next business day.
Tires are only to be set out on rare occasion at a single residential address where waste tires were generated due to that resident getting new tires installed on their vehicle. Commercial units/Commercial customers may NOT place ANY tires ANYWHERE in York City for curbside collection. This is considered ILLEGAL DUMPING and fines may be imposed up to $600 per occurrence. Commercial units must provide for collection and disposal of waste tires at their own expense. Call the York County Solid Waste Authority at 717-845-1066 for more information and costs to dispose of waste tire loads at the incinerator from local commercial customers.
The public is encouraged to be vigilant and to report any person dumping tires to the City’s Public Works Department at 717-849-2245. Be sure to get a good description of the offender(s) and their vehicle along with the license plate. Security video and photos have proved very helpful too.
