Tijuana River Valley
With help from CalRecycle and San Diego Gas & Electric, Urban Corps is addressing the long-standing problem of waste tires and large item debris in the Tijuana River Valley. Corpsmembers recently removed 1621 waste tires and approximately 15,280 lbs. of litter and debris posing an environmental health hazard in the region.
Tires in the Tijuana River Valley are a bi-national problem. California exports an estimated two million tires annually to Baja California, but a large portion of them are illegally dumped near the watershed and return to the state after rain events.
“Just wanted to drop you a note on what a great job everyone did out at the Tijuana River Valley. Staff here was impressed that we managed to retrieve over 1,700 tires in just three days. The credit goes to the Corpsmembers….and to their supervisor Rick. Rick has great control over his crew and motivates them firmly and fairly….His leadership is greatly appreciated. Also please extend my thanks to the other Corps who brought with them some stellar workers.”
