Lowndes County Public Works Hosts Tire Event
Saturday, January 13, 2018
Lowndes County Public Works will be hosting a free, scrap tire recycling event on January 6 and on January 13, 550 Gil Harbin Industrial Blvd. Volunteers will accept tires from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. each day. Citizens may bring up to fifty tires and should plan to assist with unloading. Dealer tires, semi truck tires, and tires more than 4’ in height and/or 18” in width, will not be accepted.
Old tires pose health risks, are unsightly, and can be difficult to dispose of since they cannot be buried in landfills. Buried tires will rise and can explode from the ground due to pressure from the gases that can build up in landfills.
This event is being funded by a grant solicited by Public Works from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division.
