The recent Keep Wakulla County Beautiful Tire Amnesty Event, held on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2024, was a resounding success, made possible through the generous funds from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Marpan played a vital role by providing Dumpsters, and the total weight of collected tires will be available soon, showcasing the community’s commitment to responsible waste disposal.
To manage the overwhelming response, KWCB collaborated with the county transfer station and Waste Pro to ensure efficient handling of the tire overflow. This collaborative effort demonstrated the strength of partnerships in addressing environmental challenges.
The success of the tire amnesty event was part of a broader, impactful week for the Wakulla environment. Volunteers and road adopters kicked off the week by cleaning Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, followed by a tree planting at Medart Park organized by the Wakulla Garden Club. The Arbor Day tree giveaway added to the week’s positive momentum.
“Stay green Wakulla” echoes the community’s dedication to environmental consciousness, emphasizing the importance of ongoing efforts to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of Wakulla County.
