The Adams Clermont Solid Waste District will hold free Tire Amnesty Days from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. October 16-17 at two different locations:
Franklin Twp. Administration Building, 981 Hopewell Rd., Felicity, OH
Adams Waste & Recycling, 95 Trefz Rd., West Union, OH.
Tires from junk yards, trucking, or other companies won’t be accepted but the Solid Waste District can assist businesses in finding recycling options. If “orphan” tires have been dumped on your property, please call to make clean-up arrangements.
Not only do they look bad, but scrap tires can pose a health and safety risk by acting as breeding grounds for mosquitoes and vermin. If left in the environment for long periods of time, orphan tires can leach toxic chemicals, such as zinc, heavy metals, vulcanization and rubber chemicals into ground and surface waters. Municipal solid waste landfills won’t collect tires on trash routes and can’t accept them at their landfills. Dumping scrap tires over the hillside or on the side of the road is illegal and harmful to the environment.
Bringing your scrap tires to the Tire Amnesty Day will allow them to be recycled and turned into valuable goods such as door mats, safety mulch, rubberized asphalt, railroad ties, and tire derived fuel.Call 513-732-7745 for more details.
