Tire amnesty day Nov. 3

ASHTABULA —  

Free disposal of old tires will be offered Nov. 3 at the city’s transfer station, 501 W. 24th St.

The effort is in partnership with the Tire Amnesty Grant Program, administered by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention. The program helps cities develop programs to promote scrap tire collection drives, sponsor tire drop-off efforts and engage in clean-up events.

“We are looking forward to it,” said Dom Iarocci, superintendent of public services. “We encourage residents to take part and help clean up the city.”

Mary Church, project administrator in the city’s Department of Planning and Community Development, wrote the grant and received the money for the Sanitation Department. The city received $10,000 to help in the removal of scrap tires.

City residents will be able to bring up to 10 passenger tires to the city’s transfer station and dispose of them for free from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 3. The transfer station is at 501 W. 24th St.

Participants must prove they live in the city with identification or a utility bill bearing their city address. Additional tires can be disposed of at $3 per tire without a rim and $5 per tire with a rim.
