County Collection program sends nearly 2500 for recycling
In cooperation with Newaygo County Board of Public Works, Newaygo County Drain Commissioner and Newaygo County Road Commission , Saturday June 18th resulted in a very successful tire collection day.
Newaygo County Commissioner Chuck Trapp headed up the small group of volunteers. A limit of ten tires, not on rims and no tubes allowed was the policy per person that was set. Approximately 2,469 tires were collected. Tires collected came from all of the townships throughout the county with the exception of Barton, Grant and Troy Townships. Their residents did not use the one day tire collection service. Denver Township brought in the most tires at 371. Home Township the least amount of 10. The tires have been loaded into enclosed trailers and were shipped to Environmental Rubber Recycling, downstate all per required permits.
Currently there are no more scheduled tire collections for Newaygo County in 2022.
