From 7:30am til 5:00pm on Earth Day, the Glenbrook store received over 1,000 tires that they will be taking to Michigan to be recycled in an environmentally safe method.
McMahon's wants to remind everyone that improper disposal of tires and other scrap items can be very hazardous to the environment and our community.
Nikki Jasperson, Director of Retail Development says, "We are very prevalent in the community, we always wanna stay involved and we always wanna help, so we saw this as a problem in this past few years just by being out on the roads and seeing scrap tires thrown all over the place, so we figured what better day to do it than Earth Day and try and stay involved."
Over the past 5 Earth Days combined, McMahon's has collected and recycled over 7,000 tires.
