DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Montgomery County Environmental Services is holding its first Tire Buyback Event Saturday to promote recycling, litter prevention, and community beautification.
Folks can come to the Welcome Stadium parking lot to cash in on their used and scrap tires. Montgomery County Environmental Services is offering $2 per tire, up to a maximum of 10 tires per trip.
All tires brought to the buyback event will be recycled.
Truck, farm, or other over-sized tires are not accepted.
Scrap tires can create health and safety hazards, pollute the environment, and become neighborhood eyesores if they are not properly stored or discarded.
"Montgomery County and other jurisdictions invest a lot of time and resources into cleaning up illegal dumping sites and scrap tires," said Montgomery County Commission President Dan Foley. "With this event, we encourage citizens to pick up tires from dump sites or bring in their own used tires to be recycled, which will reduce the cost of cleaning up dump sites now and in the future."
The tire buyback event is open to all residents of Montgomery County. The event runs until 2 p.m. at Welcome Stadium at 1801 Edwin C. Moses Blvd.
