The Thompson-Nicola Regional District, in conjunction with Mosquito Control Program contractor BWP Consulting Inc., is providing free, passenger tire drop-off opportunities in Clearwater and Kamloops this fall.

Because unwanted tires are prime mosquito breeding habitats, TNRD residents are encouraged to take any old passenger vehicle tires or transport tractor-trailer tires (no agricultural tires), with or without rims, and drop them off for recycling on the following dates and locations between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.:

• Saturday, Oct. 4 – Rotary Sports Park, Murtle Crescent (across from Visitor’s Centre), Clearwater

• Sunday, Oct. 5 – Dufferin Elementary School, 1880 Hillside Drive, Kamloops

“Many people may not realize that just a small amount of water inside any old tires sitting around their property can create the perfect breeding ground for mosquito larvae;’ said BWP Contractor Cheryl Phippen. “By safely recycling these unwanted tires at either of these free, drop-off locations you’ll remove opportunities for mosquitoes to reproduce around your home. That helps protect you, your family and neighbours from the nuisance insects.”
