As a part of the joint efforts in Gilmer County to clean up in honor of the Earth Day on April 22, Gilmer County’s Tire Amnesty Program has found resounding success.
Having already brought in over 5,400 tires, this program is continuing at the Tower Road location out Highway 52 for solid waste. Exempting professional businesses, any citizen or group can bring these tires to the location to have them disposed of free of charge. Additionally, there is no limit to the number of tires citizens are allowed to bring in.
The event is made possible through a Grant the County applied for and is continuing through April 29. If you have your own tires or if you find discarded old tires, you can bring them in for disposal.
Continuing past the day this event will also coincide with the Gilmer Clean-up Day planned for April 22.
