Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman said the cash paid out is a nominal price to keep the county clean.
“We’d much rather do what we do than see them in creeks, see them on the side of the road or dumped somewhere,” she said.
Montgomery County residents who can’t make the event can bring tires to the facility anytime and leave up to 10 annually for free. Tires turned in Sunday don’t count toward the free annual total, according to the county.
All tires collected at the event will be sent to a Rumpke recycling center for reuse as landfill liner and other materials, according to the county.
