It only happens once every three years, so residents of Trigg County and adjoining Kentucky counties are encouraged to drop off their unwanted tires at a free disposal event later this month.
The Trigg County disposal days will be April 26th, 27th and 28th at the road department garage at 2759 Hopkinsville Road off of U.S. 68 near the airport.
Ashley Johnson of the Pennyrile Area Development District says most tires are accepted on and off the rim.
There will likely be a line and those with sizeable loads are encouraged to bring help to unload.
The hours are 8am to 4pm Thursday and Friday and 8am to noon Saturday, April 28th. Other local counties are having similar events, with stories on those to come at a later date.
