[SEPT. 10, 2004]  Tired of those old tires sitting around? Now's your chance to properly dispose of them. The Logan County Health Department, the Lincoln Streets and Alleys Department, and the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency are working together with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to sponsor a tire cleanup day.

  • Date: Saturday, Oct. 2
  • Time: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Location: Logan County Fairgrounds Jefferson Street entrance (east gate)

Illinois EPA requirements

1. No tires will be accepted from businesses such as tire dealers, gas stations, commercial trucking companies, or anyone who will be generating and accumulating used tires after the collection has occurred.

2. No tires can be unloaded from vehicles having license plates from outside the state of Illinois

3. No large industrial or off-road tires will be accepted (tractor, truck and passenger car tires are acceptable).

6. All participants must complete and sign a "Consensual Removal Agreement" before any of their tires are unloaded.

7. Tires will be counted as they are unloaded. 

8. The maximum number of tires that an individual may bring in is limited to 1,000.

9. For people with more than 1,000 tires -- the agency will pay for the removal of the last 1,000 tires, provided the owner first pays for the removal of the excess tires.

10. Individuals who participated in a previous tire cleanup event may not participate again.

Illegally dumped tires from public roads or right of ways will be accepted from townships, the county and municipalities that may have previously brought such tires to an IEPA collection. These local units of government must identify themselves prior to unloading.
