Tired of those old, worn-out tires cluttering your garage?

The city of Corry can help you out.

The city will hold a tire collection for Corry residents Saturday, Nov. 21, at the city garage on East Smith Street.

Details are still being worked out, but the collection is expected to take place from 8 a.m. to noon.

The tire collection also will benefit the Corry Area Food Pantry.

The collection will be offered at no charge to city residents, but donations will be accepted. All proceeds will be donated to the food pantry to help the organization provide meals for needy families during the holidays.

Only five tires will be accepted from each household, and each resident will be required to show proof of Corry residency.

Also, tires will be collected in three large containers. Once those containers are filled, the tire collection will end. Corry City Council expects the containers to hold between 500 to 600 tires.

The collection will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so residents are advised to come early if they want to rid themselves of their old tires.

Pro Waste Services Inc. of Erie has been contracted to haul the tires away for recycling.

Council will announce finalized details of the collection at a later date.
