Keep Palms Springs Beautiful!

Palm Springs, CA is world-renowned as a picturesque resort destination full of beautiful vistas and stunning landscapes. But as a popular destination for motorists and a desirable setting for fans of offroading and Motorsports, the desert around Palm Springs can also attract waste tires from vehicles that have been left by the side of the road, or simply dumped in the middle of the desert.

Since tires are no longer accepted at landfills, and can be bulky and inconvenient to get rid of, unfortunately many people find it easier to dump them illegally than contact their local city governments’ recycling program. Dumping trash in the desert is illegal, and in cities like Palm Springs, it’s a huge problem.

The Coachella Valley Association of Governments is organizing a series of free tire collection events to combat this problem, and to help keep Palm Springs beautiful. Recent events in Indio, Desert Hot Springs, Coachella, and La Quinta have yielded over 3,000 waste tires which will now be recycled. That’s over 3,000 fewer eyesores in the Coachella Valley!

On February 28th, it’s Palm Springs’ turn to clean-up the Coachella Valley. All CV residents are welcome to bring their used tires to Palm Springs City Hall from 8am–12 noon to recycle for free.

Help ensure that all used tires are collected safely and recycled. Residents can transport up to 9 tires maximum per trip. Multiple trips are okay. Please bring passenger and light truck tires only. NO semi truck, construction equipment or agricultural tractor tires are accepted. Tires from businesses and non-profits will not be accepted. ALL tires must be removed from the rims.

Keep Desert Hot Springs Beautiful!

tires-recycling

If you have ever driven down the highway anywhere in the Coachella Valley, you have probably seen them: tires! Old, scrap tires are just thrown away on the side of the road, in vacant lots and abandoned alleys. Besides being unsightly, this is also illegal.

The Coachella Valley Association of Governments has banded together to organize a series of used tire collection events in 2014 and 2015 to combat the problem of illegal dumping and help keep the Coachella Valley beautiful.
