The tire collection event that Region M Waste Management partnered on with the City of Lamar was held Saturday, May 14, and it is apparent that the collection was a great success. The tires that were collected will be shredded and have the metal threads removed. The rubber will then be combined with other materials to be made into composite lumber for picnic tables and benches. Recycling services were provided by Champlain Tire Recycling. Citizens of the community are very appreciative of the recent opportunities provided by the city in order to help clean up the town.
