If you have old tires to get rid of, Saturday is the day and Glouster is the place.
The Athens County Health Department, the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office and the Trimble Township Trustees are hosting a Tire Drop-off Event at the Trimble Township Garage, 58 Morgan St. in Glouster.
Old tires will be accepted for disposal from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday.
No tires exceeding 54 inches in height and/or 16 inches in width will be accepted, according to the sponsors. All tires must also be free of water, dirt, and mud.
This disposal project is aimed at private citizens and is designed for clean-up purposes. No tires will be accepted from tire shops, dealers, scrap dealers or repair shops.
Also, “by state law, individuals may not transport more than 10 tires per load without being a registered scrap tire transporter with the state of Ohio,” according to Prosecutor Keller Blackburn. “ If you are transporting more than 10 tires without a permit, you may be subject to a traffic stop and investigation by law enforcement.”
