Bridgestone Tires4ward Program
Bridge Stone Tires will recycle tires free if you have a group that is doing a cleanup project. For example if a 4-H or Boy Scouts conduct a highway or river cleanup. They will not take tires from residents or businesses at no charge. Since this is a program designed to clean up communities it is possible Bridgestone will accept a Township as a group.
Jefferson County works with Liberty Tire (Don Hacker 920-229-4123) when they conduct Clean Sweep Tire collections. Contact Sharon Ehrhardt for information email@example.com
