There is a tire disposal collection project at the County Road Department facility. Tires are collected between the hours of 8:30 A.M. and 3:30 P.M., Monday - Thursday.
The provider for the Cross County Tire Disposal project has changed to the Pulaski County Solid Waste Management District. Because of this, the tire disposal process has also changed.
Tires will be collected and stored on the ground rather than in a trailer. Small and large tires are to be stored separately from XL tires as XL tires are disposed of via a statewide tire recycling program.
People who want to dispose of tires must complete a manifest form available from the Road Department office.
A resident can dispose of four (4) used tires of any size each month for free. Residents are to sign the Individual Collection Form when they bring tires.
If a resident brings more than 4 tires in a month, there will be a fee for the excess number. The fees that are charged are:
$3 per tire fee for any additional tires off the rim from individuals
$2.20 per tire for ATV, lawn mower, and small aircraft tires
$7.65 per tire for small skid steer, bobcat, implement, front backhoe tires and medium aircraft tires
$11.50 per tire for large skid steer, large bobcat, small tractor and large aircraft tires.
$27 per tire for medium tractor and road grader tires
$38 per tire for large tractor and industrial tires.
No tires will be accepted outside the scheduled hours and failure to comply could force the county to close the tire disposal project.
Currently there is no end date for this project.
MESSAGE from COUNTY JUDGE
February of 2021 brought us snow and ice and, with temperatures at or below zero, the ground froze. Thawing caused the gravel roads to get soft in some places and it takes some time to repair. Warmer weather and drying conditions have helped with the process. We have been addressing these issues in several areas.
County Road 372 has been approved for federal funds to complete the paving that starts at Hwy 163 on the east end and at Vanndale on the west. There is just over one mile in the middle to be paved to complete the project. All rights-of-way and easements have been obtained and the project is now in the hands of the AHTD.
Several washouts occurred during the past couple of significant rains and those have been repaired.
Contact the judge's office at 870-238-5750 with issues that need immediate attention.
