Community Scrap Tire Recycling Event

The Ottawa Conservation District is planning a Scrap Tire Recycling Event on August 8th. The location is  12150 Ransom St. Holland, MI 49424. There is a limit of 10 tires per person, a limit of a 34″ diameter, and a fee of $1 per tire (CASH ONLY). Those who wish to participate must sign up for a drop off time, and that can be done at ottawacd.org or by calling (616) 842-5852 Ext. 5.

The opportunity to collect and recycle tires is very important in the area. With the growth that Ottawa County is experiencing, there is a need for an easy and affordable service for residents. Without an opportunity such as this, residents will see tires discarded in high impact areas like ditches and rivers. These discarded tires will leach heavy metals and provide the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.

PFAS

On October 29, Robinson Township was informed that the Ottawa County Department of Public Health and Grand Haven Public Schools were notified of elevated levels of PFAS at Grand Haven’s Robinson Elementary School. School leaders immediately restricted access to drinking water in the building; bottled water is being provided to the school. Other than Robinson Elementary, all other schools in the Grand Haven Public School District are served by Northwest Ottawa Water System. This system has been tested and the results were as below health advisory levels.

The Ottawa County Department of Public Health (OCDPH) is working with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Grand Haven Area Public Schools (GHAPS) and Robinson Township to take appropriate measures and develop an action plan to help ensure the water residents are drinking meets appropriate state and federal standards.
