Lydia Mullins, Bowling Green Middle School
Lillian Fletcher, Glenwood Elementary School
In 2019, we had two contests, one for K-4th and one for 5th-7th grade. The K-4th grade winner was Lillian Fletcher, a 2nd grader from Glenwood Elementary in Rossford. The 5th-7th grade winner was Lydia Mullins, a 7th grader from Bowling Green Middle School. Lillian’s billboard was displayed on Dixie Highway, south of 5 Point Road and Lydia’s was featured on State Route 25 and State Route 582 from April 29th – May 26th. Congratulations!!
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.
Residents are encouraged to use our Household Recycling Guide for a list of locations accepting tires for proper disposal on a daily basis.
