Over 3,000 tires were accepted, most coming in during the first four hours of the day.
Logan County Solid Waste Coordinator Denny Harris said there will be another limited amnesty next March, with an open-ended amnesty scheduled for the fall of 2004.
Harris said, "The numbers seen here today indicates there is still a major problem with the disposal of tires."
Harris encourages citizens to turn their old tires in to a licensed retail tire dealer when they purchase new tires.
"The funding for tire amnesties is scheduled to be eliminated after 2006," Harris notes. "We encourage citizens not to depend on the government to dispose of your tires indefinitely."
