Recycling Resources, Practice and Policies
Basura Bash is committed to responsible recycling. Some materials are too dirty to recycle by the time volunteers retrieve them from the creeks, but we strive to direct as much as possible to local recyclers who donate their services to Basura Bash.

How are the Tires Recycled?
Basura Bash Sponsor City of San Antonio Solid Waste takes the tires to Firestone. Firestone then recycles them and contributes the disposal fee to support the effort.
All tires are delivered directly to Firestone by our City of San Antonio Municipal Solid Waste Management Department crew.
Thanks to both Firestone and the City of San Antonio!
