LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — If you have old tires lying around, the City of Lancaster will take them off your hands at no cost.
A free tire drop-off event next week is part of an effort between the City and Lancaster County Mosquito Program to help with disease prevention because mosquitoes often use tires as a breeding ground. The tires are recycled into everything from playground mulch to material for road repair.
“These tires won’t go sit in a landfill. They will be recycled and used for something else and recycling is always a good thing to do,” member of Mosquito-Borne Disease Control of Lancaster & Lebanon County, Olivia Bingeman said.
