Walton County residents north of the Choctawhatchee Bay can have old tires picked up for free by North Walton Mosquito Control during the months of November, December, January and February.
North Walton Mosquito Control will only handle the rubber portion of tires - not rims. Also, we cannot pick up tires generated by commercial entities. Businesses should contact the county landfill to inquire about tire disposal.
Old tires hold water and breed several species of mosquitoes, some of which are linked to diseases.
If you want old tires collected please call our office at 850-892-8183. There is no charge for tire pick-up.
The above was released Wednesday by the North Walton Mosquito Control District.
