Tire Pile Cleanup
Thousands of tires are being cleared from the banks of the French Broad River in Woodfin. The tires have collected over decades at the site of salvage yard. The company has been foreclosed on for non-payment of taxes and is now in a bidding war for a new owner. The project is being paid for through a tire tax from the State Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Workers estimate there could be as many as 100,000 tires. The project is expected to take three to six weeks to complete.
