Got tires in the river? Report them here!

We need your help to remove tires from the White River.

In preparation for our September 2021 river cleanup, we invite you to report any tires (or large trash dumps) you find in the White River. We’ll use your reports to focus our cleanup efforts in September.

Our goal is to partner with the Bridgestone Tires4ward program to recycle the tires we collect. If we collect at least 100 tires, Bridgestone will remove the tires for free!

In order to maximize our collective cleanup efforts, we have created a reporting system that community volunteers can use to inform the WRP about the location of tires and large trash dumps along the river.

We cannot guarantee that we will have the capacity to address all the reported tire and trash dumps that we receive, however we will do our best to address and make a plan for all submissions.

How to Get Involved

Do you know the location of tires or a large trash dump in or along the White River? Please follow the steps below to submit the location of the dump:

  • Identify a tire or trash dump along the river – we are looking for the following types of tires and trash dumps:

-A single tires or multiple tires that are in or around the White River – we are looking for tire dumps of any size

-Large items in the river that require an organized effort to remove – we want to know about things like gas tanks, home appliances, large pieces of wood and metal, etc that an individual could not remove on their own

-Large quantities of small trash items – we are looking for intentional trash dumps (multiple bags of household trash)
