$15 Drop-Off Fee to be Waived at Events in St. Lawrence County on April 25th and May 9th
State Senator Patty Ritchie is encouraging North Country residents to take the weekend to collect waste tires to be disposed of at her “Free Tire Drop-Off “ events taking place in St. Lawrence County on April 25th and May 9th.
The free events are being made possible with special funding Senator Ritchie secured in the State Budget, and are being hosted in conjunction with the St. Lawrence County Highway Department in an effort to clean up the county, protect the environment and reduce the spreading of illnesses by eliminating tires that can act as breeding ground for disease-carrying insects.
“Many people don’t realize that waste tires aren’t just unsightly—they’re a danger to public health,” said Senator Ritchie.
