Thousands of tires, some appliances collected

The Calhoun County Solid Waste Department sponsored a free tire and appliance collection that ran from Monday, April 25th, through Friday, April 29th, at the Calhoun County Road Commission garage located at 13300 15 Mile Road in Marshall.

Countless tires and over 30 major appliances were collected from Calhoun County residents.

“We would like to thank everyone who participated in our tire and appliance collection, it was a huge success!” exclaimed Tiffany Eichorst, Environmental Services Coordinator.

The tires will be hauled away in multiple 18-wheelers to Deerpath Recyclers in Dowagiac, MI. Once processed, they can be used for many applications, such as athletic surfacing, rubberized asphalt, landscaping/playground mulch and more.
