Plumas County Public Works will hold a tire amnesty day Saturday, Nov. 6, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Public Works, 1834 East Main St. in Quincy.
Passenger truck or car tires without rims will be accepted. No more than nine tires will be accepted from any one user. (California law prohibits transport of more than nine tires at any time.) There is no charge for Plumas County residents.
Plumas County reserves the right to stop accepting tires for free disposal at any time, with or without notice. Free disposal is not available for tire dealers or other businesses.
There will be a 2011 tire amnesty event in Chester.
A grant from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) funds the tire amnesty, which is sponsored by Plumas County Department of Public Works, Department of Conservation-Division of Recycling and the Rural Counties’ Environmental Services Joint Powers Authority.
Funding for this program is limited.
