The Jackson County Health Department, in cooperation with the Gallia-Jackson-Meigs-Vinton (GJMV) Solid Waste Management District, will conduct a Scrap Tire Day on Saturday, May 8 from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the GJMV Solid Waste District Building at 1056 S. New Hampshire Ave. in Wellston

The cost is $1 per tire and only passenger tires will be accepted, no semi or tractor tires. The tires can still be on rims. There is no limit on the number of tires which will be accepted from any single customers, but officials urge customers to avoid having unsafe loads with too many tires.
