Passenger truck and car tires without rims will be ac- cepted for free. The Department of Public Works, together with the De- partment of Resources Recy- cling and Recovery (CalRecy- cle) and Rural Counties Envi- ronmental Services Joint Powers Authority, has hosted seven tire recycle events in Plumas County since 2008. Funding comes from a por- tion of the tire disposal fee on purchased new tires. More than 6,500 tires have been collected from backyards, streams and forest lands since the program started. The Greenville event will be the eighth event and should bring the total of tires collect- ed to more than 7,000. "It's hard to imagine that many old tires are just laying around in our county becoming habitat for mosquitoes," event coordinator Phyllis Taddei said. "The problem of discarded tires has been with us since we started the automotive age." The environmental impact is more than ugly piles of tires. Stored tires are po- tentially combustible and are toxic when they burn, and these old tires are excellent breeding habitat for rodents, mosquitoes and other insects. Years ago, very few used tires were recycled. Today, more than 80 per- cent of them are reused or re- cycled in some way. Judging from the turnout, these cleanup events have been a huge success. Residents have been very ap- preciative of the opportunity to help clean up and participate in the recycling of these tires. The development of new us- es for scrap tires and "crumb rubber" made from scrap tires is a growing industry. Local community service groups have been instru- mental in past events. The Greenville Rotary Club helped at the 2010 event. Local Rotarians promoted the event, collected tires and offered refreshments. This year the Greenville Ro- tary Club has again offered to participate in the program and event organizers and sponsors appreciate and look forward to their help. "Community participation at. the 2010 tire disposal event in Greenville was overwhelm- ing, with a fantastic turnout," Taddei said. "We would love to see that again." Residents need to be aware that California law prohibits the transport of more than nine tires at any time without proof of exemption. Public Works has exemp- tion forms available for the public's use so folks can legal- ly haul up to 20 tires at one time to the event. To request an exemption form or for more information, call the Plumas County De- partment of P.ublic Works at 283-6268. Free disposal is not avail- able for tire dealers or other businesses. Industrial, farming and heavy equipment tires cannot be accepted during this event.
