Illegal Tire Dumping
February 24, 2010
Illegal tire dumping in southwest Atlanta neighborhoods has become such a nuisance that even the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has picked up a story (“Residents, businesses fed up with dumping ground”) about the problems. Thankfully there are two positive notes to add to this otherwise annoying topic:
For the short term: Councilmember Cleta Winslow is sponsoring a tire amnesty day on Saturday, February 27, 2010 from 9:00am to noon. Residents are asked to help pick up tires around the neighborhood and bring them to the drop-off site at the corner of Donnelly Avenue and Peeples Street in the Oakland City neighborhood. Westview residents will meet at 9:30am at Ontario Park to pick up tires in the community. Volunteers are appreciated!
For the long term: The AJC article indicates an illegal dumping hotline has been set up for this problem at 404-546-3867 or e-mail at email@example.com.
