Free Tire Collection Scheduled

In partnership with the Lancaster County Mosquito-Borne Disease program, the City of Lancaster will hold a free tire collection on Saturday, Nov, 10 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Bureau of Parks building, 421 S. Broad St.

Tires provide excellent habitat for mosquitoes, like the Asian tiger mosquito, a potential vector of Zika virus, and a number of other mosquitoes species that may be a nuisance or spread other diseases, such as West Nile virus.

The collection is open to anyone living in Lancaster County. No preregistration is necessary, but please bring proof of address (drivers license, utility bill, etc.). Space is limited, and tires will only be accepted as space allows. Tires must be off the rim, free of water and excessive dirt, and not burnt.
