Arenac Conservation District “Tree for a Tire Day”
The Arenac County Conservation District proposed a tire recycling day. There was no active tire recycling program in the County and old tires were typically burned, stacked up in back yards, or disposed of on state land. The District traded a tree seedling for each tire that was delivered to the recycling site. The goal was to recycle 2,050 tires. WIN funding supported the charges associated with trailers that will be used to transport the tires to First Class Tire Shredders Inc.
What a great idea to help our communities rid of scrap tires!
