Prepare Yourself for the 12th Precinct Tire Round Up
Community Liaison Officer Kalous has arranged for a dumped tire round up for the 12th Precinct (which includes the Stoddart, Olde Towne East, and greater Franklin Park neighborhoods). Liberty Tire has generously agreed to take these littered tires off our hands (and out of our alleys) if we bring them on Saturday, October 13, 2012 to the vacant lot at Main and Kelton next to Church’s Fried Chicken between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
As many of you know, some people seem to take delight in dumping tires and other things in our alleys. The Block Watch spends a lot of time cleaning this stuff up. However, tires cost money to properly dispose of. There was a dumped tire on the SACG lot when we first broke ground in 2009 and another across the street.The Tire Roundup is also open to residents of the 7th and 11th precincts as well because we don’t want them taking their tires and dumping back in our alleys after the Tire Round Up.
Tires are the only item that may be brought to the Tire Round Up. Officer Kalous will be there to ensure that no one brings anything other than tires. This is not a city-wide dumping event, either, since we do not want to impose upon the generosity of Liberty Tire.
Feel free to gather at the SACG at 11 a.m. on October 13 so that we can peruse our neighborhood for dumped tires and transport them to the Round Up.
