Albany-- Albany and Dougherty County leaders want to help them get rid of those mosquito magnets. This Saturday from 9 a.m to 4 p.m, you can drop off tires for free. County officials say this collection event not only cleans areas of unwanted tires, but helps get rid of mosquitoes and the threat of West Nile Virus by reducing mosquito breeding grounds.

"The tires laying around our community are eyesores number one, but number two they are also a health hazard. Snakes, rodents, and mosquitos love to breed in those tires, and with the West Nile Virus in our county we need to get rid of these tires and pick them up and properly dispose of them"said Judy Bowles with Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.

The four tire drop-off sites will be Radium Middle School, Clark and Maple roads, Newton road and Monroe, Third Avenue and Slappey. If you have unwanted tires, but cannot transport them to a drop off location, you can contact public works at 883-6950 before Saturday for help.
