Daviess County Fiscal Court Hosting Free Tire Disposal Event for Kentucky
Do you have tires you need to be gone? Daviess County Fiscal Court in partnership with the Kentucky Division of Waste Management will be sponsoring a free tire disposal event.
JUST LYING AROUND
Have you changed the tires on one of your vehicles at home and then had no clue what to do with them? Tires can be a nuisance if you keep them around. Angel here and I had a set of tires a few years ago that I was going to use as spare tires for my truck and then got new ones and didn't have anywhere to dispose of them. They stayed at the back of my garage for way too long and collected dirt and water which caused extra problems including bugs.
Did you know it's illegal to throw tires in the trash? Tires aren't biodegradable and they take up way too much space in landfills. Tires can also be dangerous. Think about all that rubber-catching fire. It's a problem that no one wants on their hands.
HERE'S HOW TO DISPOSE OF YOUR OLD TIRES
Tires will be accepted on, on-or-off rim, including farm implements, bicycles, motorcycles, go-carts, ATVs, tractors, trucks, and passenger vehicles. They do ask that you remove all water from tires prior to dropping them off. They will not accept Off-Road Construction Tires (OTR), tracks, sheet rubber, solid, calcium, or otherwise filled, or any tire with a bead greater than 1 ¾ in.
Any Kentucky resident can drop tires at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds located at 6191 Hwy 54 in Philpot on the following days:
Thursday, July 15th from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Friday, July 16th from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday, July 17th from 7 a.m. to Noon
