The vehicular inspection service, Riteve and the Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social (CCSS), will continue their campaign to collect discarded tires this week, in a campaign against Dengue.

Riteve will accept used tires at its stations in Alajuela, Santo Domingo de Hereida and Lagunilla from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.

The campaign aims to prevent the spread of Dengue, as discarded tires are a favourite breeding place for mosquitos.

All the tires collected will be recycled and used as fuel by the Holcim cement plant in Cartago.

All types of tires not exceeding 22 inches in diameter will be accepted.
