FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) - An effort by Frankfort city officials to keep the Wildcat Creek clean continues Wednesday.
Frankfort's street department is removing tires that had been sitting in the city's old landfill for years.
The effort started a couple weeks ago by gathering the 800 tires that were scattered around the land.
Street superintendent George Belmore said it's important to remove the tires from the site, because of how close it sits to the Wildcat.
"We're just wanting to spruce up our landfill because Wildcat Creek is just 20 yards away from these tires and we just needed to go ahead and clean up this space," Belmore said.
The tires will be taken to Indianapolis, where they will be recycled or disposed of in another landfill.
