TDOT Litter Grant to help with tire disposal

NEWPORT—Cocke County citizens needing to dispose of used tires will get a break on January 11 and January 18, according to Keep Cocke County Beautiful Director Tim Berkel.

"Currently citizens may only dispose of four tires per person at one of our local convenience centers,"Berkel explained. "Even so, hundreds of tires are still be disposed of illegally across Cocke County by citizens just dumping them randomly, often on someone else’s private property."

However, because of a TDOT Special Litter Grant, the number of tires an individual may leave at a convenience center will be increased to as many as 12 tires per individual on those two Saturdays.
