Disposal of the following tyres for recycling will incur a disposal charge:

  • domestic-use tyres (motorcycle, car and 4WD tyres);
  • all tyres from businesses; and/or
  • all tyres fitting commercial type vehicles (i.e. forklift, bobcat, tractor, truck)

Tyres are only accepted at Bonnick Road (Gympie), Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach, Kilkivan and Goomeri Waste Management Facilities. Council will not accept bulk quantities of tyres for disposal. Businesses should use a tyre recycling company for this purpose.
