The Road to Recycling event is sponsored by the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality through a regional collaboration of RGV cities and counties. The goal is to reduce the number of unwanted tires found in yards, collecting water and creating ideal breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitoes, according to a news release from the county.

LRGVDC requests that those dumping their tires practice social distancing guidelines and wear a facial covering/mask when dropping off tires at collection sites.

Event Rules:

10 tires per person maximum at county collection sites (no oversized or tractor tires)

Proof of residency required (driver license & utility bill)

Must be a resident of the collection site location
