Leon County to Host Amnesty Day to Prevent Mosquito Breeding Grounds

WHAT: Amnesty Day for Tires
WHEN: Saturday, May 18, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tire’d of mosquitoes? To help prevent breeding grounds for mosquitoes, Leon County Government, in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will host an Amnesty Day for citizens to drop off tires for free. The event will be on Saturday, May 18, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Leon County Fleet Management, 1800-1 N. Blair Stone Road. All Leon County citizens who bring a valid ID verifying their County residence will be allowed to participate.
It is important for waste tires to be disposed of properly because unused tires collect water and create ideal breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitoes.
Residents may dispose of up to 25 passenger car tires free of charge. Commercial loads will not be accepted. This event is for tires only and no other items can be accepted.
Beyond Amnesty Day, citizens may visit the Leon County Solid Waste Facility and Rural Waste Service Centers to dispose of tires, household garbage, recyclables, yard waste, bulky household Items, and white goods during normal business hours. Normal service charges will apply.
