IEPA Help Removed 55,000 Dumped Tires


IEPA State regulators and local governments in northern Illinois have removed more than 600 tons of dumped tires.

John Kim is director of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. He announced last week that the haul in five counties amounted to nearly 55,000 tires.

Kim says the work improves local landscapes and reduces the risk of diseases carried by mosquitoes who breed in water that stagnates in the tires.
