We are encouraging residents to properly dispose of old tires and other items that may hold standing water to prevent mosquito breeding and the diseases they may carry. The Durham Tire Recycling Drive will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at the City of Durham Waste Disposal and Recycling Center (2115 E. Club Blvd.)
