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.
