How do I dispose of a tire or car battery?

The landfill off of Washington Road has a paved drop off area and accepts self-hauled materials for a fee (319-753-8722) Solid Waste crews can collect tires and lead-acid batteries from Burlington Solid Waste customers. Tires require 2 Trash Tags for the first tire from a residence and 1 for each additional tire. This pertains to tires from motorcycles, cars or pick up trucks. We do not pick up tractor tires. Tires must be clean but they can be on or off the rim. Lead-acid batteries require 2 Trash Tags for collection. To get on the list for pick up, send an email to provide your name, address, and telephone number.
