BATH – Details of the Steuben County annual municipal roadside cleanup weeks and tire amnesty week are among the agenda items facing the county Legislature when it meets at 10 am, Monday in the county Annex, 20 E. Morris St.

The popular clean up allows municipalities to set two weeks aside for removing garbage and tires from their roads and haul the debris to the county landfill at no cost.

The plan waives the standard tip fee of $44 per ton for up to 20 tons of garbage removed during normal maintenance. The standard tip fee of $200 per ton passenger car tires and $300 per ton large truck and tractor tires is waived for up to 10 tons.

A separate “Tire Dollar Days” Week will allow for passenger vehicle tires to be brought to the landfill and transfer stations for recycling at a cost of $1 per tire, down from the usual fee of $3 per tire. Normal fees will remain in place throughout the week for large commercial, construction and agricultural tires.
Appointment to 14 county legislative boards are also expected.
