Tire collection underway
The Livingston County Health Department will be assisting in the collection of unused tires in an effort to reduce mosquito breeding grounds by providing a means of environmentally safe tire disposal.
Tires are notorious breeding grounds for mosquitoes. After sitting outdoors, tires often fill with stagnant water and nutritious leaves making them perfect environments for mosquitoes to thrive.
Tire disposal program eligibility requirements:
• Tires limited to passenger cars and trucks. No farm implement, semi, and large tires of any kind. Tires can be off or on the rim.
• Limited to 4 tires per household/vehicle.
• Tires must be unloaded by the individual dropping them off
• Appointment required. No exceptions.
To schedule a tire drop-off appointment, call the LCHD Environmental Health Division at 815-844-7174 ext. 216.
