Mercer tire amnesty program successful

HARRODSBURG - Residents participated in Mercer County's tire amnesty program late last month in record numbers.

Mercer County Judge-Executive John Trisler told magistrates Tuesday that one citizen filled his vehicle with as many tires as he could get in it and had four left, which he attached to his car with a chain and dragged them behind the vehicle to the recycling center.

This person, who Trisler did not name, was one of 521 who took advantage of the day to take tires to the center at no charge. Trisler said 19 tractor-trailer loads of old tires, totaling about 38,000, were brought to the center between April 22-24.


The last tire amnesty program was in 2000 when about 19,000 tires were taken to the recycling center.
