Tire Amnesty Event

A special thank you to Ken Vollmar, Devin Swanson, and Doris Herringshaw for all of their help during the event!

Thank you to all who attended the Tire Amnesty Event!  Our totals are showing a collection of 3,607 tires from 429 residents.  The tires filled nearly 4 semi-trailers and were hauled away by Liberty Tire to be recycled properly.  This event was funded by a grant through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.  At this time no plans are in place for a future event.     

The tire event on Saturday was a success with over 3,500 tires collected for recycling!  The Commissioners would like to thank all of the Wood County residents who took their time to bring tires.  We appreciate your patience as the lines were long.  For those unable to attend, there are many everyday solutions for proper tire disposal with minimal charge in Wood County.” ~Commissioner Doris Herringshaw

Residents are encouraged to use our Household Recycling Guide for a list of locations accepting tires for proper disposal on a daily basis.
