Residents in the Daviess County, Kentucky, area are being offered a free way to get rid of their unwanted tires.

The Daviess County Fiscal Court is sponsoring a free tire disposal event that will take place from Thursday, July 15, through Saturday, July 17, at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds.

The event will be held from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. noon on Saturday.

Tires will be accepted, on-or-off rim, including farm implements, bicycles, motorcycles, go-carts, ATVs, tractors, trucks, and passengers.

Any water should be removed from tires before they're disposed of.

“Old tires can be an eyesore and a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests,” said JudgeExecutive Al Mattingly. “Bring your unwanted tires to this free collection event for proper disposal.”

The site cannot accept Off-Road Construction Tires (OTR), tracks, sheet rubber, solid, calcium, or otherwise filled, or any tire with a bead greater than 1¾ in.

Anyone with questions can contact the Daviess County Solid Waste Department at 270-229-4484.

The Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds is located at 6191 KY-54 in Philpot, Kentucky.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
