Tire Roundup is scheduled! 4/15/2017
This year the Tire Roundup will be on Saturday, April 15, 2017!!
It’s one of our favorite days of the year…..Tire Roundup!! For those of you that don’t know, one day a year for Earth Day, volunteers pick up old tires and take them to ChaRM, located at 1110 Hill St. in Grant Park. This is free and is made possible by our Councilperson Natalyn Archibong and East Atlanta volunteers.
Tires will be accepted for free at CHaRM on that day from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a tire/tires that needs to be picked up or if you see a tire/tires on the street or in a vacant lot.
We will either pick up on that day before 12:00 p.m. or make arrangements and a trusty volunteer will pick the tire/tires up ahead of time. This is for East Atlanta only (see map below). You can also drop your tire/tires off at CHaRM yourself just tell them you live in East Atlanta. Other neighborhoods will be having similar events so check them out.
We are making a huge dent in the abandoned tires. In the past we have collected thousands, yes thousands of tires in just 4 hours. Last year there were only about 50!! More information will be available for this day from Natalyn’s office so stay tuned. Also, if you would like to volunteer on that day, please let me know.
AND FYI...the City of Atlanta does not pick up tires so please do not put them on the curb expecting sanitation to pick them up. Not going to happen. Except for this one day a year, you have to do the responsible thing and depose of them by taking them to CHaRM (the first 2 tires are always free) or pay a tire shop a small fee to take them.
