We have retired our annual Tire Amnesty Day event due to decreased demand for collection. Many auto service businesses in Allen County now accept used and worn tires, offering more opportunities for residents to dispose of their tires properly.
A complete list of businesses in Allen County that accept used tires can be found here or in our Waste Watcher Guide on page 37.
Every year, Americans throw away millions of plastic straws. They are not recyclable and never biodegrade. Most of us don’t need them, yet use them for minutes then discard them to last forever. Many straws make their way into rivers and can harm wildlife. All of us can make the small change of saying, “No straw, please” and challenging our friends and family to do the same.
This video is our reminder of what might happen if the fish decide to fight back.
