The event will take place over several weeks beginning Thursday, October 1, and continuing through Friday, November 20 with social distancing guidelines in place. Residents may dispose of up to 25 passenger car tires free of charge. Commercial loads will not be accepted.

Starting October 1, citizens can drop off tires at the Leon County Solid Waste Facility from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday or at one of the Rural Waste Service Centers from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday-Sunday.

Mosquito Control Services

Mosquito Control services are available to all city and county residents. Direct services include inspections, larvicide applications, truck sprays and, where appropriate, placement of mosquito fish. 

For evening biting mosquitoes, large property or street spraying is the most efficient control method. 

All services are conducted at no cost.
