Standing bodies of water can serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and mosquitoes have been found to transmit Zika Virus.
In an effort to reduce areas where water can collect and subsequently reduce mosquito breeding, the Citrus County Solid Waste Management Division will be accepting tires at the Central Landfill free of charge for recycling on Thursday, July 26th 2018 from 8am to 4:30pm, continuing Friday, July 27th, 2018 from 8am to 4:30pm and Saturday July 28th, 2018 from 8am to 2:30pm.
Residents in assessed and non-assessed areas can dispose of a maximum of twenty five (25) passenger and/or pickup truck tires, without rims free of charge for recycling. This event does not apply to waste tire haulers or commercial entities and is intended for residential only. This is a sponsored event by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
The Central Landfill is located at 230 W Gulf to Lake Highway (SR44) in Lecanto. FL 34461.
Residents needing further information about this event, or any other Solid Waste Management Program, may call at (352) 527-7670 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
