Free Tire Recycling Days at Landfill
Standing bodies of water can serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and mosquitoes have been found to transmit Zika Virus.
In an effort to reduce areas where water can collect and subsequently reduce mosquito breeding, the Citrus County Solid Waste Management Division will be accepting tires at the Central Landfill free of charge for recycling on Thursday, July 25, 2019, continuing Friday July 26, 2019 from 8:00am till 4:30pm and Saturday July 27, 2019 from 8am to 2:30pm. This is a co-sponsored event by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
The Central Landfill is located at 230 W Gulf to Lake Highway (SR44) in Lecanto. FL 34461.
Residents in assessed and non-assessed areas can dispose of a maximum of twenty-five (25) passenger and/or pickup truck tires, without rims free of charge for recycling. This event does not apply to waste tire haulers or commercial entities and is intended for residential only.
Residents needing further information about this event, or any other Solid Waste Management Program, may call at (352) 527-7670 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
