Clover Couple Gets Assistance To Remove Tires

Posted: Updated:

York County Public Works has offered to take care of the thousands of tires illegally dumped on Gary and Donna Boheler’s property in Clover.

The couple was ordered by the state in January to clean up the tires that lay deep in a gully on their property.

So one by one, they picked up the tires and loaded them onto a truck.

“My back and my legs and my hips are literally screaming at the end of the day,” said Donna Boheler.

They did not know about the tires when they bought their home, but discovered them a few months later. They believe the tires were dumped sometime in the 1950’s. The state said it was the responsibility of the property owners to remove them.

Gary Boheler stressed about it for months, seeking help from neighbors and church groups to help remove the tires. He even sold his car for money to pay for trucks and equipment to load the tiers.

But then York County Public Works came out to the property to evaluate the situation.

“We didn’t realize how many tires were in the ravine at the time,” said Assistant Director of York County Public Works, Eric Rekitt.

Because the tires are not the fault of the property owners, they have offered to spend $15,000 of grant money from the state to remove and dispose of them.

“It would have been quite an undertaking for two people by themselves,” said Rekitt.

The tires should be gone by the end of this month.
