🚗 The Gist: Hall County has scheduled Tire Amnesty Days for residents to dispose of old tires at no cost on November 30 and December 1, in an effort funded by a grant from the Georgia EPD.

🤔 Why It Matters: Facilitating the proper disposal of old tires helps prevent environmental hazards and roadside clutter, which is essential for community welfare and environmental health.

What’s Happening:

  • Residents can bring up to 10 tires to the Hall County Landfill on the specified dates for free disposal.
  • The landfill is located at 1700 Oakbrook Drive, Gainesville, with operations running from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the event days.

🔍 Between the Lines:

  • Only tires measuring 20 inches or less in diameter and removed from wheels are eligible, pointing to the need for residents to prepare tires beforehand.
  • Tires from tractor-trailers, farms, and agricultural equipment are excluded.

🏃 Catch Up Quick:

  • To prevent illegal tire dumping, Hall County is taking proactive measures by offering this disposal service.
    • The landfill is regularly open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., but closed on Sundays.

🖼️ The Big Picture: Hall County’s Tire Amnesty Days aim to ease the environmental and aesthetic burden of tire disposal, providing a structured and eco-friendly avenue for residents to discard old tires.
