Tire recycling


This coming week Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy counties are participating in a tire recycling program in conjunction with the Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council. Here’s how it will work for us in Cameron County Precinct 3: On Saturday June 24, you may take 4 tires to the collection site at the Cameron County vehicle maintenance yard located at FM 510 (San Jose Ranch Rd.) and Line M Rd. in San Benito. You may only take 4 tires per person and you have to show your driver’s license to prove you are a resident.

Here is a map showing the collection sites; if you have more than 4 tires, you can try another family member or collection site – we aren’t sure how strict the county will be on checking.


Please take advantage of this program – used tires are a fire hazard and when the rain comes, they provide the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Spring cleanup

It’s that time of the year. Our tax dollars are being redirected back to us. The county will be putting a dumpster at the fire hall on Saturday April 8 and will remove it on Thur April 13. Don’t believe the flyer – the dumpster will be gone on Thursday April 13. This is a golden opportunity to get rid of all that trash that doesn’t fit in the garbage can. Please! no tires or chemical products (paint, batteries, refrigerators etc.)


Keep our community safe and pollutant free. Don’t mess with Arroyo City!

Winter Texan Luncheon

Yesterday’s luncheon at the Church on the Arroyo went off without a hitch. Some 60 attendees were treated to Turk’s famous smoked brisket, roasted chicken (for the no red meat people), a myriad of side dishes and a plethora of desserts. By all accounts, everyone enjoyed the occasion and no one left hungry. A big thank you to the organizers and bon voyage to our Winter Texan friends when they leave.



Hidalgo Borderfest

After some legal wrangling, the 41st Hidalgo Borderfest wraps up tonight after four days of celebrating our own country. Each year, the festival has paid homage to a different country, bringing a bit of its culture and history to the Rio Grande Valley. In light of the current political climate, organizers decided to celebrate our own country, highlighting the things that make us all proud to be American. While Arroyo City News did not attend any events (Hidalgo is a long way away), we understand the festival was a success and a good time was had by all.
