In preparation for Hurricane season, rural county residents can do their part to clean up our neighborhoods, roads, and ditches by dumping old tires at free collections sites this Saturday, May 8.

The Road to Recycling event is sponsored by the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) 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. Illegally dumped tires are a significant problem for the entire valley, impacting flood-prone areas and waterways, and creating health risks.

There are 31 collection sites across Hidalgo County participating in this one-day event. For rural county residents, there are 12 Collection Stations open and available. Residents will be able to drop off up to 10 tires at the county collection sites. The event is free. 

Please see below for locations and times. LRGVDC requests that you practice social distancing guidelines and wear a facial covering/mask when dropping off tires at collection sites.

The 12 Hidalgo County sites are:
