Cemex in Mexico, is taking used tyres off the streets of Santiago de Queretaro, Mexico, thanks to a local authority initiative to clean up tyres left on vacant urban land and in the city’s drainage system.

The Mayor, Marcos Aguilar Vega, announced that up to 3905 wheels were collected during the first “Llantaton 2017”, held in early December. These were added to those collected throughout the year.

"In cooperation with the tyre companies and the cement factory these programmes of tyre collections have helped clean up the environment of Queretaro," said the Mayor.
He said that in the first week of December, 7000 tyres had been delivered to Cemex for processing.
