Special disposal opportunities offered through the City’s Clean Green Springfield initiative continue this weekend with a tire recycling event that will include a second opportunity to recycle mattresses at no cost.
WHAT: Tire and Mattress Toss
WHEN: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, May 22
WHERE: 404 N. Jefferson Ave.
Recycling tires can help harmful chemicals stay out of the earth, water, and air. It can prevent tires from becoming disease-carrying-pest breeding grounds and can keep them from starting fires. When you are ready to get rid of your old tires, make sure they get recycled.
At Saturday’s Tire Toss, Springfield citizens have the opportunity to drop off up to 8 tires per residential household. Tires ONLY will be accepted. Rims must be REMOVED. The City will also continue to accept mattresses on-site during the tire event. Up to two mattresses or one mattress and box springs set of any size will be accepted per residential household at no cost. Recyclable mattresses must be clean, dry and not infested.
Tires and mattresses must be transported to the drop off site at 404 N. Jefferson Avenue. No home pickup option is available.
In case of severe weather, the hours of operation for the May 22 event may change or be postponed. Visit CleanGreenSGF.com and watch the City of Springfield’s social media sites for potential updates, cancellations or early event closure notices.
