Hall County residents looking to dispose of old tires have a chance to do so free of charge on Thursday, Nov. 30 and Friday, Dec. 1 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hall County Landfill.
Tire Amnesty Days are offered to Hall County residents who may dispose of up to 10 tires, with all costs covered by a grant from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD).
“This is a service we are always excited to offer to the residents of Hall County,” Solid Waste Superintendent Nathan Smith said. “Tire Amnesty Days allow folks to legally and safely dispose of old tires, keeping them from being left behind elsewhere or on the side of the roadway.”
Tires must be 20 inches or less in diameter and not attached to a wheel. Tractor-trailer, farm and agricultural tires will not be accepted.
Vehicles with more than 10 tires will be charged for overages, and car tags will be recorded to limit the amount of tires per vehicle.
The Hall County Landfill is located at 1700 Oakbrook Drive, Gainesville. It is open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. The facility is closed on Sundays.
