Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Tire Roundup

February 8th Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Hosted by the Georgia Conservancy, Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance, Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve and Liberty Tire.

On February 8th, the Georgia Conservancy, Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve, Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance and Liberty Tire are hosting a “Tire Roundup” for the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area.

The Tire Roundup will provide a duel focused approach to removing / preventing illegally dumped tires by 1) identifying and cleaning large tire dumps in the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area and 2) setting up a “tire drop-off center” at the Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve (3787 Klondike Road , Lithonia, GA).

Liberty Tire will pick up tires at The Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve and at the identified tire dump sites in the heritage area. The “tire drop-off center” will be open from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and will be available up to for non-commercial drop off only, maximum 6 tires.

We are looking for volunteers to help our staff manage the tire drop-off site and help remove tires at several larger dumpsites in the Arabia Heritage Area. Guests will meet at the Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve at 9:00 for coffee and complementary light breakfast before splitting up into teams and driving to the tire cleanup sites. Vountters who are willing to use thier own truck to help hual tires are needed.

    This was such an amazing event. 1000 tires……WOW!!! I had no idea that so many tires would be collected within a 3-4 hour time period but that goes to show the hard work and dedication of all the volunteers and organizers that made this event successful.
