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.
