Old tires are a problem - what do you do with them? They are difficult to dispose. Piles of tires are ugly and can pose health, safety and fire hazards. Unwanted tires hold water which can breed mosquitoes that carry diseases like Zika and West Nile Viruses. Are waste tires a problem in your community?

What is the Independence Conservancy?
We are a 501c3 nonprofit environmental organization based in Industry, PA. We were established in 1999 as the Independence Marsh Foundation, and changed our name in 2007 to better reflect our mission as a land preservation organization. We restore and protect lands and waters in the Raccoon Creek Watershed and vicinity. Our tire shear is a key tool in our watershed cleanup efforts, and has been used to process over 40,000 tires at many events throughout Beaver, Allegheny, Washington and Lawrence Counties.
