Residents can dispose of tires at no cost in Missouri counties

from Southeast Missourian

Two counties in Missouri are providing residents an opportunity to properly dispose of scrap tires at no cost. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources, a partner in the disposal process, said on its website the removal of scrap tires is a priority for environmental and health reasons. It estimates that Missouri residents generate approximately 5 million scrap tires annually, which can then harbor "mosquitoes, snakes and other vermin." The program at Scott County already is underway, and highway superintendent Norman Brant said it has collected more than 2,000 tires. Although improper disposal has not been a large problem in the area, he said the county found it important to offer the program. more
