I agree with the previous comment and would like to add that it seems to me it would have been better to have more publicity about the "tire amnesty day" before the fact, instead of afterwards. Though I look at the articles in the Oroville Mercury every day, I did not see anything at all announcing the day beforehand! Perhaps next time there could be more publicity of it up front. Thank you.

I agree as well. I have a few tires I would have contributed had I known about this before it happened instead of after.

This seems to be a trait of both the tire disposal days as well as the hazardous waste collection events.

It would be really nice to hear about these operations a week or so before they occur.

Plus I heard it on KPAY a few days before.
