TAVARES — County residents are invited to help combat mosquito populations and keep the community clean by participating in Tire Amnesty Day, held from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Lake County Landfill, 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares.

Sponsored by Keep Lake Beautiful (KLB), Lake County Solid Waste and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the event seeks to reduce the number of unsightly waste tires that might be lying around yards, collecting water and creating ideal breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Residents may dispose of up to 24 passenger car tires that measure 40 inches or less free of charge. Large commercial tires will not be accepted. Tire Amnesty Day is open to all Lake County residents with a photo ID or proof of address.

Its mission is “to beautify Lake County by engaging our community” through neighborhood, park and lake clean-ups and to provide environmental education.
