Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong Partners with Big Names for annual Tire Round-Up on

Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong is partnering with Scrappy Green Recycling and the world’s largest junk removal company, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to improve efficiency at one of Atlanta’s largest Earth Day events.

The year’s volunteer tire round-up is expected to collect more than 2,000 illegally discarded tires throughout District 5 waterways, vacant lots and roadsides. Since 2002, Councilmember Archibong’s effort has collected over 6,000 tires!

“We’ve noticed a huge amount of excitement from everyone involved because we’ve partnered with a company like 1-800-GOY-JUNK? “ Archibong said. “They will be on hand with their trucks to help transport all of the tires from various sites and make things easier for everyone.”

Residents of District 5 can drop-off discarded rim-free automotive tires free of charge. Due to capacity limitations, the event is reserved for District 5 neighborhoods only.

For additional information, please contact Councilmember Natalyn Mosby Archibong at 404-330-6048 or 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Owner, Michael Spivey at 404-510-8353.
