Truckloads of tires arrive for redemption program

(WMC-TV) - A popular tire redemption program's comeback Wednesday brought some new traction to the Mid-South's effort to decrease blight.

People were lining up at Liberty Tires on Elvis Presley Boulevard as early as Tuesday night for Shelby County's program that pays a dollar per tire.

In past years the tire redemption program has taken thousands of old tires off the streets.

The goal is to reduce the kind of community blight associated with the illegal dumping of tires.

To participate you must have identification that proves you are a Shelby County resident.

Also, the limit is 100 tires per trip, two trips per day, until the money runs out.

The place to bring your old tires is 3000 Elvis Presley Boulevard. Organizers say just show up between 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Keep in mind no one will get paid at the redemption site, and that money will be mailed to participants.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
