Here’s a chance to get rid of those old tires for free. The Shasta County Department of Resource Management will host a free waste tire collection event this Saturday (5/13) in Shasta Lake City. The old tires will be put to good use to make running tracks, synthetic turf, accessibility ramps, rubberized asphalt, landscape covering, playground surfaces, roofing and more. Up to 9 tires are accepted at no cost or up to 20 with an authorization letter, available by calling 225-5789. No truck tires or tires larger than 17″ and no rims. The event is this Saturday from 9AM to 2PM at the corner of Ashby Road and Shasta Gateway Drive. It’s open to all Shasta County residents.
