Kick your used tires to the curb and help us fight the bite at our tire drive on Saturday, July 24. Scrap tires hold water, which provides the perfect environment for mosquitoes to lay their eggs and to hatch. To help reduce the mosquito population, the City of New Albany is partnering with Franklin County Public Health to hold a scrap tire turn-in day on July 24 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the New Albany Public Service Department located at 7800 Bevelhymer Road. Limit 10 tires per household. Only passenger vehicle tires without rims will be accepted. Packages of mosquito larvicide tablets will also be available for free. Residents can use these to treat rain barrels or other containers of standing water on their property. Click here for additional information.
