Keep Lake Beautiful invites residents to take part in Waste Tire Amnesty Day

Keep Lake Beautiful is inviting Lake County residents to help combat mosquito populations and keep the community clean by participating in Waste Tire Amnesty Day on Saturday, Dec. 11. Residents with photo I.D. and proof of address may dispose of up to 24 passenger car tires that measure 40 inches or less free of charge.  Large commercial tires will not be accepted. Tires can be disposed of at the community cleanup event at Sorrento Park from 9 a.m. – noon or the Solid Waste Facility located at 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Sponsored by Keep Lake Beautiful, Lake County Solid Waste and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the event seeks to reduce the number of unsightly waste tires that might be lying around yards, collecting water and creating ideal breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitos.
