As a result, the District will be hosting an Agricultural Tire Collection Event on Thursday, September 14, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Personnel with loading equipment will be in the south-west side of the parking lot of the Lorain County Collection Center, located at 540 South Abbe Road in Elyria, OH. Participants MUST pre-register for this event PRIOR to Friday, September 8, 2023, by calling the District at 440-329-5440.

Sizes are broken down into 3 categories: 22 inches to 36 inches, 37 inches to 60 inches and 61 inches or larger. This is measured from edge to edge of the tire, not rim size.
