Subject: QUERY: What to do with used tires?

As you know, tires that sit around accumulate water...which is a breeding
ground for mosquitoes...which can transmit deadly diseases. So we need some
urgent information on short-term solutions for used tires. Please respond
directly to Marcelo, and cc the list.
