(Willow Springs) – The South Central Solid Waste Management District will hold a free collection event for scrap tires December 1-15 at the Willow Springs Recycling Center on Old Burnham Road in Willow Springs.
The event will run from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM each day.
Representatives from SWMD say the collection will be limited to 1000 tires, or a truckload, and tires from businesses will not be accepted. Tires dropped off should be passenger sizes 20″ or less and be off the rim. Collection is open for all residents of Howell, Douglas, Oregon, Ozark, Shannon, Texas and Wright Counties.
Officials say that the 1000 tire limit is usually reached quickly, so if you have tires you should show up as soon as possible.
SWMD will also be hosting a free drop-off for old computers, computer parts, televisions, and microwaves at the Booster Field Parking Lot in Willow Springs on December 15 from 9 AM to 2 PM.
