Barberton Junk Cars is back with the latest news regarding auto recycling of junk cars. We are an established junk my car facility that pays cash for junk cars 6 days a week in Summit, Portage and Medina counties. If you have a non-running or unwanted car, truck, van or SUV, give us a call for a scrap car quote. We strive to have a positive environmental impact for the preservation of the resources. Our topic below is a new initiative in the scrap and recycling of vehicle tires.
Andy Barrand of the Hillsdale Daily News composed an article titled ‘Agencies receive money for tire recycling’ in the May 14, 2016 edition that told us the following: “Jefferson Twp. and the Hillsdale Conservation District were among fifty-two localities that received funding grants to collect scrap auto tires within Michigan. Jefferson Twp. received over $12K, and the conservation district received in approximately $40K. The collection of tires at the Jefferson Twp. Transfer Station, which is located on Pioneer Rd., in Osseo, will begin this week. The station is open @ 8am until 5pm. 6 days a week. There is no fee assessed for auto tires while the funds from grant remain available.
The Jefferson Twp. treasurer, Mr. Jim Lockwood, says the grant pays for environmental disposal of approximately (6) trailer loads of junk tires. He thinks that the trailers will quickly fill up. Lockwood says it is discouraging to see tires thrown out along the roadways of the county, although there are places to dispose of them properly. The Hillsdale County CD’s collection will run between 8am and 7pm on August the 26 at the County Fairgrounds. Pre-registration is necessary for this district collection. Residents seeking to dispose of tires during the district collection event must register by August 19th. Registration is available in person or by calling 517-849-9890, or by via e-mail to email@example.com. A pre-registration form is also made available at www.hillsdalecd.org.
The DEQ says the community events offer an affordable tire recycling opportunity to all residents. Improperly dumped tires do pose a fire-hazard & create a breeding ground for mosquitos. Recycled junk auto tires are used in roadway asphalt, as garden mulch, at playgrounds as well as in manufacturing. Those collected at Jefferson Twp. will be taken to Huffman Rubber for processing. There is a minimal handling fee for the larger semi-truck tires & tractor tires. The transfer station facility accepts tires all year for a fee of $1.25 for auto tires, for semi tires at $5 and between 15 and 25 dollars for tractor tires.” The complete article is available at this link: http://www.hillsdale.net/article/20160514/NEWS/160519289
