Scrap tire drives are one method of source reduction, the removal or elimination of breeding sources that currently are or have the potential to breed mosquitoes. In 2019, Bay County Mosquito Control will hold two community scrap tire drives, which are funded in part through a Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Scrap Tire Clean Up Grant. The scrap tire drives are designed to help clean up the environment and reduce mosquito habitat.
The first is scheduled for Saturday, June 1 and will be held at Bay County Mosquito Control's field station, 810 Livingston Street, Bay City and the second will take place August 3 at Fraser Township Hall, 1474 N. Mackinaw Road, Linwood. Each Bay County residence may bring up to 10 rimless regular car or truck tires to the drop-off site, which will accept tires from 9am-2pm. No tractor tires, semi-truck tires, or tires from commercial businesses or agricultural entities will be accepted.
When dropping off tires, county residents must provide a driver's license as proof of residency. Tire drives are geared toward scrap tires accumulating in neighborhoods. Therefore, tires will not be accepted from commercial businesses.
If you have any questions, please call the office at (989) 894-4555.
