There are around 300 million tires in the US that get discarded each year. Unfortunately discarded tires can serve as a breeding area for mosquitoes. Tires should not be burned because of the toxic compounds the smoke can contain. Tires even cause space issues in landfills, so the best way to discard of waste tires is through recovery events like the one below:
Warren County’s 2015 Waste Tire Recovery Weekend will be April 30th thru May 2nd, 2015, at the county’s salt storage barn. The facility, at 999 Lauren Avery Drive, is accessible using the road to the Bluegrass Materials Co. Bowling Green Central Quarry, off of U.S. 31-W near Bristow.
The county will not pickup tires. No tires will be accepted before the scheduled recovery event.
Retailers, used tire resellers, junk and scrap yards may not participate in the recovery event.
All tires must be brought during the event hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EXCEPTION: Tire piles containing more 1,500 or more Passenger Tire Equivalents must be reported in advance, and will be collected by a waste tire recovery contractor at a later date.
NOTICE: Dumping of tires is illegal. Anyone caught dumping or having participated in the conspiracy to dump tires illegally in Warren County will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.Warren County recommends that tires be left at certified tire retailers who are collecting the fees to allow for proper disposal when tires are replaced with new tires. These retailers also accept used tires for disposal for a nominal fee per tire.
