Free Tire Disposal Event

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

The Zika virus, a mosquito-borne infection linked to birth defects in Brazil and has made its way to Florida. Un-rimmed tires hold rain water and, as such, serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. In an effort to cut down on mosquito breeding grounds, the Solid Waste Management Division is proposing a free tire disposal day.

This event is a part of the Department of Health Zika Response Plan. Citrus County residents, in assessed and non-assessed properties can dispose of tire sizes including passenger and pick-up tires, without rims, at the Citrus County Central Landfill, free of charge. This event is scheduled for Saturday, April 1, 2017, from 8:00 A.M. until 2:30 P.M.

Mosquito Control will assist the Landfill if necessary by spraying collected tires to prevent mosquito breeding until tires are properly disposed of and recycled. This does not apply to commercial entities.

Residents needing further information about this, or any other Solid Waste Management program, may call at (352) 527-7670 or by email at landfillinfo@citrusbocc.com .
