The Piatt County Soil and Water Conservation District Foundation is excited to announce their Oil and Tire Recycling event will be held on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, at the Piatt County FS located at 427 W. Marion St. in Monticello. 

 

Jonah Totten, Resource Conservationist for the Piatt County SWCD, says if you plan to recycle tires, you must be a Piatt County resident and must be prepared to show ID with address. Also, you must be able to unload your tires.

 

Tires must be off the rims or they will not be accepted and no more than 10 tires per person will be accepted. 

 

A donation of two-dollars per car tire is recommended and for larger tires, it's just based on size. 

If you have tires larger than car size tires you must call 217-762-2146 x 3 or 309-831-7558 on or before July 1 and have your tire dimensions ready. 

 

You can bring as much oil as you wish. 

 

Recycling and reusing used motor oil is the preferred disposal method and can provide great environmental benefits. Recycled used motor oil can be refined into new oil, processed into fuel oils and used as raw material.

 

Again, the recycling day will be on Wednesday, July 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Piatt County FS. If you have any questions or want more information, please contact the Piatt County SWCD office at 217-762-2146 x3.
