In an effort to decrease the number of scrap tires in the area, Keep Dawson County Beautiful is offering Dawson County residents a Tire Amnesty Day from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at the Dawson County Transfer Station, located at 946 Burt Creek Road.
The service is free and allows each household to dispose of up to 10 clean passenger car or light truck size tires. No tires with mud, dirt, debris or rims attached will be accepted.
The service is not available for tire retailers or wholesalers.
The program offers residents an opportunity to dispose of tires for a small donation. Minimum voluntary donation per carload drop-off is $5.
For more information on Tire Amnesty Day, call KDCB Chairwoman Karen Armstrong at (678) 943-0516 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
