Hundreds of residents stopped by the Millfair Compost and Recycling Center to drop off their old tires and paperwork.
The tires will be recycled and used as mulch for playgrounds, and the paper gets shredded on site by local company "Shred-X" and then will be shipped off and recycled into facial tissue.
This recycling event happens annually, and recycling coordinators tell us the community really supports these kinds of recycling initiatives.
If you're a resident of Millcreek or Fairview and didn't get the chance to stop by today, the recycling event continues tomorrow from nine to noon.
