TIRE RECYCLING PROGRAM 

The Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation
manages a program for Anne Arundel County residents
which provides a drop-off location for farmers to properly
dispose of scrap tires. A vital component of this program
is the willingness of sponsors to provide funding for
additional trailers. Each year, The Anne Arundel Soil
Conservation District contributes to the sponsoring of
trailers for this important program. For more information
