Update: As of 3/8/2021, all spots have been filled. We will not accept walk ins. We will update you if more spots become available. Thank you to everyone who registered.
JCWA and American Architectural Salvage will be collecting tires on March 27th. Organize a dumpsite clean up or bring tires that you have lying around to the round up and JCWA will dispose of them properly at no charge to you.
Signs will direct you to a drop off location. Pull up in your vehicle to the drop off site. Volunteers will be available to help remove tires from your vehicle. Limit of 8 tires/person.
JCWA will only accept whole, regular sized tires. Examples of items that will not be accepted: pieces of tires, tractor tires, etc....
Bringing in tires to be disposed of properly will help decrease pollution in our waterways and watershed. Tires are also known to hold stagnant water which create the perfect mosquito breeding ground. Properly disposing of tires will decrease mosquito populations and the spread of disease.
Walk ins are welcome but registration is highly encouraged to ensure your tires will be accepted.
JCWA can only accept so many tires. If you do not register, there is a chance you will be turned away.

JCWA is proud to announce that we are working with Shop N Save Mount Pleasant to install green infrastructure which will decrease flooding in the area and increase the health of our streams and watershed!
Catch basins and rain gardens will be installed in the Shop N Save parking lot which will collect rain/stormwater, which would normally flow over hard surfaces and into our streams, and allow it to absorb into the ground. This will decrease flooding on the property and add to the beauty of our watershed.
Construction mobilization will start this week with work to begin Monday, March 8th. This project is scheduled to be finished by the end of May.
JCWA is excited to get this project started and continue to uphold our mission of conserving and rehabilitating our watershed.
