SUGAR CREEK, MO (KCTV) -
A Sugar Creek woman says she is willing to go to jail over her recycling project.
Toni Shelton, who prefers to be called Toni Bones, has repainted old tires and turned them into planters.
"I was just really interested in recycling and I'm really big on self-sufficiency," she said.
But others consider the tires trash that could attract mosquitos and create other issues. So municipal leaders issued her a warning.
"They just said they needed to go," Shelton said. "I told them I was going to be using them for planters in the spring and they informed me it wasn't allowed."
Sugar Creek Chief Herb Soule said the city's concerns was the number of tires.
"We'd asked her to put them somewhere else because there were quite a number of them," Soule said."We try to keep people from accumulating tires because they retain water and they attract mosquitos. They detract from property values in the neighborhood too."
When Shelton refused to comply, the city issued her a citation. Citing her principles, she is refusing to pay the fine and is willing to go to jail over the issue.
However, she has moved a majority of the old tires and is storing some of the tires inside an old truck. Still she said she won't get rid of all the tires because she said it would send the wrong message to her children.
"I don't want my kids to see me back down and not follow my heart," she explained.
The case will be heard in municipal court in Sugar Creek next week. Soule says as of right now that the woman's property is not in violation of any municipal codes.
