Based on the pictures and numbers, the first ever “Tire-less James,” organized by the James River Association, the Virginian Canals and Navigation Society and the Heart of Virginia Council of the Boy Scouts of America, looks to have been a roaring success. On August 17th, according to Christina Daniel of the JRA, 154 volunteers floated 59 miles of the middle James River (between Richmond and Lynchburg) and removed 479 tires. All the tires were then picked up and recycled by Bridgestone Americas’ corporate One Team, One Planet Spent Tire Program. Here are some pictures of how it went down.
