Have Some Old Tires? Free Tire Recycling is Coming to Kent County
If you have some old tires in your garage, barn, or property and live in Kent County, free tire recycling is coming soon.
Old Tires Can Be Hard to Get Rid Of
It can be very difficult and expensive to get rid of old tires. It is pretty easy to build up a small stack if you don't live close to a place that will recycle them.
I should know about trying to get rid of old tires. When I bought my house 4 years ago, it was an old farmhouse and the property had been in the same family for over a hundred years. The property had been used for farming and a dairy farm at one time.
What I didn't know about the property was how many old tires were hidden in the fields. There was a small stack of tires and I thought that was it but boy was I wrong on that one. After clearing some of the corrals and the areas around the barn I wound up finding hundreds of tires.
Luckily for me, I have a cool brother-in-law that always seems to know a guy and he was able to get rid of the tires and not cost a bunch of money.
Free Tire Recycling in Kent County
When I saw free tire recycling coming to Kent County on Saturday, November 12, I have to admit I got really excited because I had found another dozen tires on the property this year. Then I realized that I live in Newaygo County and not Kent County and you have to be a resident in order to recycle tires.
