Residents of Champaign County can drop off passenger and small truck tires at a three-day tire collection event that begins Thursday.
Tires — with or without rims, and 17 inches or less — can be dropped off at two locations: C-U Public Health District (201 W. Kenyon Road, Champaign, east parking lot) or Urbana Township Road District (2312 Perkins Road, Urbana, east parking lot).
Drop-off times: Thursday, Aug. 4, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m.-noon.
Residents should take special note of the parameters regarding which tires will be accepted. The size limit of 17 inches refers to the rim size around which the tire fits — or the inner size of the car tire and the outer size of the rim. Oversized, agricultural or commercial tires will not be accepted at the collection.
Any questions about the collection can be entered in the ‘Contact’ tab at the Champaign County Environmental Stewards website. A CCES volunteer will respond to questions received.
