The City of Alice is hosting a tire round-up on Saturday, April 6 to help keep Alice beautiful.

The city invites Alice residents to take any old tires to the Coyote Recycling Center located at 103 West Third Street or to the City of Alice Landfill on 109 County Road 118.

Abandoned scrap tires pose a serious threat to human health and the environment. The tires provide an ideal breeding ground for mosquitos and contain oils that can contaminate the soil.

Residents must show a proof of residence with a water bill and only passenger vehicle tires will be accepted. Residents are limited to 8 tires per household.

The drop-off locations will be open from 8 a.m. till 12 p.m.
