The Tioga County Conservation District, along with Shell and The Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority, are asking people to think before they dump.

Illegal dumpsites contaminate our soil and groundwater supplies, have a negative impact on property values, and attract disease-spreading rodents and mosquitos, creating a public health hazard. Ultimately, they negatively impact the quality of life and the way people feel about the community.

Come to the Tioga County Conservation District, 1867 Shumway Hill Road, Wellsboro to receive coupons to recycle up to four tires per household for free at either of the NTSWA transfer station locations: 540 Old Bloss Rd in Blossburg, or 10455 Route 6 in Wellsboro. Tires must be under 20 inches and not be rimmed. Coupons are limited and expire March 31.
