Tire collection

Tire collection

August 24 a 2nd tire collection was held at Missaukee County Recycling Center. Up to 10 free per household were received with a charge of $2 for each additional. The response was OVERWHELMING! We required 5 semi-trailers to contain the tires! Lake City Football Team were the “tire tossers” for the June 1 collection and Lake City Varsity Cheerleaders were at the August 24 collection.

Thank you for your help! 

Funding from the 2018 collection came from:

2014 Missaukee Conservation District millage – for electronics.

Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Clean Sweep Program – for herbicides and pesticides.

USDA Rural Development Solid Waste Management Grant – for hazardous chemicals, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, oil and antifreeze. 

Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Scrap Tire Grant – for tires.

Saturday, June 3, 2017 we held a Household Hazardous Waste event. Almost 8000# was collected in addition to 900 tires, 2 Gaylords (4′ x 4′ x 4′) of electronics and a large quantity of confidential papers were shredded!

What a GREAT electronics collection we had Saturday, August 19, 2017! Households from all Missaukee County townships and cities participated for a total of  276 households. We collected close to 2 semi-truck loads of electronics. Remarkable, way to go, Missaukee County! Thank you to Missaukee County Sheriff Department (trustees) and our fine volunteers for their assistance.

Made possible by the 2014 Missaukee Conservation District millage.
