Storm-Delayed Cleanup Back On For Saturday

If you want to get rid of tires that are causing eyesores or collecting water and breeding mosquitoes, Saturday is the day.

Keep Polk County Beautiful is offering to allow Polk County residents to dispose of up to 24 tires for free at Westwood Park in the Inwood neighborhood near Winter Haven.

The park is located at 1145 36th Street NW. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This cleanup, which will also involved curbside cleanup in the surrounding neighborhoods, was postponed earlier this spring because of the frequent storms that blew through the area.

This event is also a good opportunity to get information about recycling and the proper disposal of any kinds of wastes.
