SCRAP TIRE COLLECTION
Cuming County has been awarded a grant from the
Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality for the
purpose of having a scrap tire collection. The Nebraska
Loess Hills Resource, Conservation and Development
Council (RC&D), Papio-Missouri River NRD, Lower
Elkhorn NRD, City of West Point, the Cuming County
Fair Board and the Cuming County Extension are
partnering to organize the collection.
The collection is Friday, September 5th from 8:00 a.m.
to 12:00 p.m. at the Cuming County Fairgrounds in
West Point, NE. The collection is open to residents of
Burt, Cuming, Thurston, Dakota, Washington, Dodge,
Colfax, Stanton, Sarpy and Douglas counties.
There will be no charge to dispose of tires at this
collection. The collection will accept tires of any size,
but there is a limit of 100 tires per vehicle and collection
participants should be prepared to unload their own
tires because limited unloading assistance will be
available. The collection will NOT accept rims, tires
from dealers/resellers, or semi-truckloads of tires.
Attached is the scrap tire poster to be distributed. For
