TIRES…NO COST TO DISPOSE-
Tires just sitting around your home take up space, deteriorates the look of your property and become breeding grounds to some dangerous critters. To top it all off you have to pay to get rid of them!
During the Annual Spring Clean-Up you can get rid of those tires once and for all at the landfill, with NO additional cost to you. Tires must take the tires to the designated area at the Landfill.
Restrictions: The tires must be 24 inches or smaller. Tires on rims, tractor or heavy equipment tires will not be accepted.
