PA CleanWays Plans Tire Collection in Smethport For McKean County Residents

PA CleanWays Plans Tire Collection in Smethport For McKean County Residents

PA CleanWays of McKean County, an affiliate of Keep PA Beautiful, is sponsoring a tire collection day, Saturday, July 19, 2014, from 8:00 AM to Noon at the Smethport Borough Sheds, on Route 6, in Smethport, PA. This will be the only tire recycling event held in McKean County this year. 

McKean County Residents can dispose of car or light duty truck tires for $1.00 per tire. In addition, residents can dispose of tractor trailer type truck tires or race car tires at this event for $2.25 per tire. The tires can have the rims on or off. Tires are to be brought to the Smethport Borough Sheds on Saturday, July 19, 2014, only. Participants must pre-register and pre-pay at the McKean Extension Office in Smethport (814-877-5613). 

This project is paid for by a grant secured by PA CleanWays from the PA Department of Environmental Protection. Extension Educator, Jim Clark, stated, “We have room for 2,400 car or light duty truck tires and a 1,000 truck tires. 

If you are not on the list you will be turned away, so people need to be sure and call. 

The collection will be held on a first registered, first served, basis. This is a one day event only.” The tires are being recycled by Mahantango Enterprises. Additional volunteers are still needed and encouraged to call the McKean County Extension Office to receive directions and register to help.

The chapter has found that tires are a major problem as they work to clean up illegal dumps in the county. Tires are also the number one breeding site of mosquitoes, which can be a possible health problem, if they carry West Nile Virus.
