ALTON -- The South Central Solid Waste Management District (SCSWMD) is holding a collection for waste tires.
The collection will continue through Dec. 19 at the Oregon County Maintenance Shed located on Highway 19 at Alton. Tires may be brought to the collection site from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
According to SCSWMD Coordinator Lynda Roehl, the collection is limited to 1,000 tires, a truckload. "We cannot accept tires from businesses which sell tires or accept tires as a part of their business," Roehl said. She said all tires should be passenger size of 20 inches or less and be off the rim.
