Used Tires Litter Marshall County Roadside

November 9, 2007

Yates Avenue between 190th and 200th Streets - Sheriffs Office Requests Help With Tire Dump.

Sometime between the afternoon of November 3, 2007 and the afternoon of November 4, 2007 an estimated 100-200 tires were dumped in a Marshall County ditch on Yates Avenue, two miles West of the Tama County line, between 190th and 200th Streets on the East side of the County between Marshalltown and Green Mountain.

The number of tires estimated by the Marshall County Engineer's Office would seem to suggest a potential commercial component whether it be from a vehicle scrapper, tire dealer or recycler. At any rate, it is a large volume of tires that taxpayer dollars will now be used for in the removal and proper disposal of. Beyond labor and transportation, Marshall County does pay the landfill for each tire.

A dump truck or truck and trailer may have been involved. The number of tires would have involved more than one pickup or pickup load.

Anyone with information or possible suspects are asked to contact the Marshall County Sheriff's Office through the communications center at 641-754-5725.
