Changing your tires? Need to dispose the old ones? 
Residents can dispose their used rubber tires at the Waste Sites free of charge.  
Collecting used and scrap tires has an important positive impact on the environment.  Many fantastic new products are produced from used and recycled rubber.  Disposing used tires properly keeps them from littering our landscape.    
If you use a fireplace or wood burning stove/furnace in your home, make sure that your chimney is kept clean and free of obstructions. Your chimney's job is to safely and easily remove the harmful by-products of fire from your home. If your chimney is not functioning properly, smoke, gases, and other substances can make their way back into your home where they can damage your property and affect the health of your family. Over time, soot and debris can build up in your chimney, forming blockages that prevent material from escaping. Even more importantly, creosote (a natural by-product of burning wood) will build up in your chimney. Creosote is highly flammable and is the leading cause of chimney fires. Every chimney should be inspected and cleaned at least once per year. However, if your fireplace or stove is in frequent use, it may be necessary to clean your chimney more frequently. If you notice a significant amount of sooty buildup in your chimney, or any glazed creosote, it is important that you have your chimney cleaned as soon as possible. These materials could lead to smoke damage to your home's interior, or even a house fire.
At the October 17, 2016 Regular Council Meeting, Council acknowledged Fire Prevention Week by watching the No Time to Spare Video, presented by the Fire Marshall’s Office. This video offers a strong message regarding working smoke alarms and a fire escape plan.
