VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County health leaders want to fight West Nile before it becomes a threat this season.

That's why they're holding a tire amnesty period.

Tires are a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes, and mosquitoes can carry the West Nile Virus.

Officials say it's important to properly dispose of tires.

This helps reduce the spread of the virus in Vigo and other surrounding counties

The department will collect your tires between April 2nd through May 4th.

Vigo County residents can take them to the Vigo County Health Department Vector Control at 1241 7th Avenue in Terre Haute.

It's free, but they'll only take up to 10 tires.

It's by appointment only.

To make an appointment, call 812-234-9181.
