In Steuben County, the Planning Office is… well… planning.
Disposal of tires will begin to cost you this summer in Steuben County.
Now, county officials are planning to have a “Tire Recycle Day” at the County Highway Department sometime in July.
They say they were overwhelmed during a “Tire Amnesty Day” last year when they collected enough tires to fill seven semis.
They plan to charge $2 for passenger and race tires and $10 for semis, tractor and agricultural tires, but it’s a safe and sanitary way to dispose of old tires, which can harbor mosquitos and cause health concerns.
