Keep Carroll Beautiful is pleased to announce the upcoming TIRED of TIRES amnesty recycling event, hosted in collaboration with the Carroll County Government and Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
Tired of Tires will be held from Saturday, June 3rd, to Saturday, June 10th at the Carroll County Transfer Station on 439 Simonton Mill Road, during the opening hours of 8 am to 3:30 pm, with the exception of Sunday, June 4th. Residents are encouraged to bring up to 10 passenger vehicle tires, free of charge. Please note that the tires have to be 18 inches in diameter or smaller and that tires on rims will not be accepted. For individuals with mobility issues, assistance unloading tires will be available on both Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm.
Funding for this amnesty event is provided in part by the STAR EPD Program, which supports the collection and recycling of passenger vehicle tires in the State of Georgia. Additional funding for Keep Carroll Beautiful recycling initiatives is provided by the Alice Huffard Richards Fund, Carroll EMC Foundation, and the Community Foundation of West Georgia. Keep Carroll Beautiful would like to also express gratitude to Gradick Communications for their media coverage support, which helps raise awareness about the importance of responsible tire disposal.
“We are excited to host the TIRED of TIRES event in partnership with Carroll County Solid Waste Department and Carroll County Sheriff’s Office,” said Martyna Griffin, executive director at Keep Carroll Beautiful. “Our goal is to encourage the community to dispose of their unneeded tires as tires may harbor mosquitoes, rats, and other vermin if left in the elements, and can create a fire hazard and emit polluting smoke.”
