JACKSON — A scrap tire collection day is slated for Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Jackson.
The event will take place at the Jackson City Garage, located at 10 Main St. in Jackson. The event is open to the general public with a disposal cost of $1 per tire and a 10-tire maximum per load. Only cash will be accepted.
This event is being organized by the Jackson County Health Department in partnership with the GJMV Solid Waste District and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
This service is available on a first-come, first-served basis as long as space in the semi-trailer is available. Those disposing of tires will have to load their own tires onto the semi-trailer. Tires from businesses or tires on rims will not be accepted.
Jackson County Health Commissioner Kevin Aston reported that at the first event earlier this year in Wellston, 487 tires were removed from Jackson County’s environment.
