Benefits | What is the reason for free Document Shred and Tire Disposal Day?
The City of Killeen says it encourages its residents to destroy items properly in order to protect customers and businesses, reduce safety hazards, comply with federal privacy laws, improve document security and ensure responsible recycling.
Unused tires in a yard can store rainwater, which attracts unwanted pests. A recycled tire can be turned into fuel, used in asphalt, playground equipment and more, according to the city.
