Please join us on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the Juniata County Fairgrounds located at 308 8th Street, Port Royal, PA from 8:00 a.m. to 12 Noon for Tire Wars 2019.
All Juniata County residents are invited to bring out their old tires to be recycled for a low, low fee.
We’ll be competing with Mifflin, Perry and Huntingdon Counties to see who can collect the most tires. It doesn’t matter if they’re rim-on, old and cracked, or just plain muddy.
