More than 220,000 old tires litter the land at a Berkeley County abandoned recycling and tire processing facility.
A $2 million grant from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) aims to remove them all.
A viral aerial video showed the vast amount of old tires at VIVA tire recycling facility in Moncks Corner.
Alarmed elected officials soon got involved in the cleanup, all the way to the governor of South Carolina.
