The Town of Candor will be hosting a tire and scrap metal clean up for Town of Candor and Village of Candor residential households on June 1, 2 and 3. The collection will take place at the Town Highway Garage, located on 33 Humiston St. in the Village of Candor, from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
The collection is held to minimize potential areas for mosquitoes to reproduce and reduce health-related problems transmitted through insects and vermin, and to assist in beautifying the Town of Candor.
Up to six tires per residential household will be accepted at no charge (up to 19-inches); after the initial six, there will be a fee of $3 per tire. Tires on rims will be taken at no charge and will not be included in the six-tire limit.
Clean scrap metal will also be accepted at no charge and proof of Town of Candor and Village of Candor residency is required.
This is event is hosted by the Tioga County Department of Solid Waste, and funding for this program is provided by Upstate Shredding- Weitsman Recycling.
