Farm tire recycling coming up

The agricultural community will once again have an opportunity to recycle unwanted farm tires through a collection sponsored by the Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District. The event will be held at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds in Fremont at the north parking lot. This collection is open to farm owners, operators and residents in the three-county area (including Bellevue and Fostoria residents). Absolutely no dealers or agri-business will be permitted.
Pre-registration is required to participate. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13, and will end at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. Prior to calling, know the number of tires by type/size that you would like to recycle. When the office is contacted, a representative from the District will provide you with a time for delivering your tires and confirm the cost based on the quantity and diameter of tires being recycled. It is important that all participants bring proof of residency (driver’s license) to the collection site. This will verify your registration and speed the process of generating a receipt for your records. Pre-register by calling the District’s main office at 419-334-7222 or toll free at 1-888-850-7224.

Dave Ninke performed several patriotic songs in preparation of the procession. After the coffee social, seniors proceeded to the road to honor their fellow countrymen. Many carried signs and waved American Flags in tribute to the many veteran motorcycle riders who accompanied the procession.
