Fugitive Tire Roundup

Westmoreland Cleanways would like to invite youth organizations, groups or clubs to register for this year’s Fugitive Tire Roundup. During this annual program, youth groups (posses) from the county collect fugitive tires-tires that escape proper disposal and end up along our roadways, waterways, fields, wooded areas and wetlands. Each group selects one Saturday in April to complete their roundup and turn in their tires. Posses receive a bounty for each of the first 200 passenger tires collected (maximum bounty of $150).
