Community tire collections are offered as a public service to provide proper and affordable disposal of scrap tires, thus reducing the risk of Zika and West Nile viruses by eliminating stagnant water where mosquitoes breed.
Over 52,000 scrap tires have been properly disposed through the Community Tire Collection Program since its inception in 2004.
The Independence Conservancy is a nonprofit environmental stewardship organization active in Beaver, Washington and Allegheny Counties.
