Bainbridge, GA (WALB) - Getting rid of old tires can be expensive, but people in one South Georgia County are catching a break.   If you live in Decatur county, you've got a free pass for one more week.   This week and next, Keep Decatur County Beautiful, part of Keep America Beautiful, is offering tire amnesty.

Instead of paying a fee and just dropping them in the land fill, you can drop them off at the Decatur county fairgrounds.  Keep Decatur County Beautiful will dispose of the old tires which often pose problems.  

Suzanne Brandt, director of Keep Decatur County Beautiful explained, "When the rainwater or any type of water gets in these tires it breeds mosquitoes like crazy, and also they're a good place for snakes to hide out."

Last year the group collected 210 tons of old tires. They'll be recycled and re-used in an environmentally-friendly way
