Tire pick up planned for area

MARQUETTE — The Superior Watershed Partnership’s Great Lakes Conservation Corps crews are available this month at no charge to pick up Marquette County residents’ scrap tires and recycle them at the Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority.

GLCC crews are available by appointment to pick up, haul and properly dispose of a maximum of 10 tires per county residence for free. Car and truck tires that are 22.5 inches in diameter or less, including tires on rims, will be accepted. Larger tires, tractor tires, tires on split rims and tires from businesses are not eligible, with no exceptions.

Elderly and handicapped Marquette County residents will receive priority scheduling.

These efforts have been made possible thanks to funding from a scrap tire cleanup grant awarded by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.

For more information, Marquette County residents may email mindy@superiorwatersheds.org.
