Caldwell County residents will have a chance later this month to get rid of old car and truck tires lying around in your garage or on your property.
Coordinator Lynn Williams with Caldwell County Solid Waste tells the News Edge the tire amnesty will be Monday, April 26, from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Williams adds the county collects anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 tons of tires each year.
He says later this year the state will host a tire amnesty for everyone, including those who live in surrounding counties.
