Tire Cleanup

October 3, 2006

Albany -   An Albany city commissioner is concerned a drop-off tire drive isn't enough to help fight West Nile. Commissioner Tommy Postell thinks the idea of a tire round-up is a great idea. But those most at risk for West Nile, the elderly and disabled, won't be able to bring their tires to drop-off areas. He's working on a plan to pick up tires from those homes.  

He says, "My concern is basically the handicapped persons and the person that's disabled that can't come to the site and bring the tires. We need some mechanism for them to be able to call and get them picked up."

Postell says citizens can call the City Public Works Department to see about arranging a tire pick-up. The drop-off day is this Saturday from 9AM to four PM at Radium Middle School, Clark Avenue and Maple, Newton Road and Monroe and Third Avenue and Slappey.
