Tire Clean Up Day

Saturday, May 28 at 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM in CDT

The City of Benton is sponsoring a Tire Clean-up Days in May in order to allow residents the opportunity to dispose of their old, used tires!

tiresThe purpose of this is two-fold. First, old tires collect water and are a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Those mosquitoes can carry many viruses including the Zika Virus. We want to prevent such things from developing in Benton.

Second, we want to give all residents a free opportunity to dispose of those old, used, and unwanted tires. This opportunity is provided in advance of a new policy that will begin in June regarding citations for tires being left on properties in the City.

Starting in June, any property owner with a tire found left on their property will be cited. This will be followed with a fine if the tire is not properly stored or removed in the specified time. This fine will be $25.00 per tire.

We hope that our residents will utilize the free opportunity we are providing and help us clean-up the City of Benton!

NOTE: Tires are to be dropped off at Earth Services at 14716 Hwy 14 East, Benton, IL  ONLY during the times listed!
