MOUNT VERNON — Farmers in Delaware, Knox, Marion and Morrow counties are eligible to participate in a special Farm Tire Drop-off Event scheduled for Saturday, June 29, in Knox County. This event is sponsored by the DKMM Solid Waste District, in cooperation with the Knox County Offices of the Commissioners, Health Department and Soil & Water Office.

Reduced rate fees have been established, as follows, for dropping off tires: Tires up to 36 inches in diameter, $4 each; tires 37 to 60 inches, $10 each; and tires 61 inches and larger, $15 each.

Preregistration for the event is mandatory, as each participant will be assigned an appointed time to drop off tires. Farmers may call the DKMM Solid Waste District at 740-223-4150 with the number and sizes of tires they plan to drop off and to learn the drop-off location.

Registration is limited to farm families. No dealers or agri-businesses will be permitted to participate in the drop-off.
