Keep Orange County Beautiful (KOCB,) is building community partnerships across Orange County.  KOCB is working with The City of Vidor, Superior Tire and Service of Orange, and D&D Scrap of Bridge City to collect abandoned tires and scrap metal on Saturday, July 27, at no charge.  

The event is being held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Vidor Public Works, 155 North. Watt, behind the Vidor Police Department.  Residents are invited to bring abandoned tires (limit eight per resident) and scrap metal for recycling.

This is the second tire recycling KOCB has sponsored in 2019.  200 tires were collected in March at the Orange Boat Ramp, as part of the annual Trash-Off.  

The goal for the Vidor event is to collect 500 tires and scrap metal.  

KOCB is working on scheduling an event in Bridge City later in 2019.
