The proposal to close four of five transfer stations in Oswego County has become quite the heated topic.

If you’ve got old junk tires to get rid of then Saturday is your day. It’s the second of two Tire Amnesty Days in Oswego County.
Normal tire disposal fees will be waived for people bringing tires to the county transfer stations from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday June 14.
The event is sponsored by state Sen. Patty Ritchie and the Oswego County Legislature to allow residents to safely dispose of unwanted tires and reduce mosquito-breeding habitats.
Oswego County transfer stations and recycling drop-off centers are located at Bristol Hill, 3125 NYS Route 3, Volney; 1167 County Route 7, Hannibal; 1391 U.S. Route 11, Hastings; 700 E. Seneca St., Oswego; and 100 County Route 2A, Pulaski.
“I’m pleased to once again partner with Oswego County to host these free tire disposal events and help residents take the necessary precautions to reduce the risks associated with exposure to mosquitoes,” Ritchie said.
Frank Visser, Oswego County Solid Waste Director, said the county will accept up to eight tires per household at no charge to Oswego County residents. Additional tires will be accepted but they must be weighed in on the transfer station scales. There will be a $10 minimum fee for additional tires. Tractor tires must be cut into quarters.
