Mosquito-abatement efforts can be spurred by tire-recycling programs.

Since countless tires are stored outdoors, rainwater & snowmelt gathers in tires; providing a breeding-ground for mosquitoes. Furthermore, it is difficult to empty tires of water.
One solution to discard water from tires is to cut-off the sidewalls of tires; which can be done with basic knives available at any hardware/home improvement stores.
Since the sidewalls of tires do not contain steel belts, companies that buy recycled rubber may also find sidewalls valuable since Nylon is far simpler to deal with than steel-belts.
Recycling programs that buy-back the sidewalls of tires from the public, as well as scrap-tire handlers are excellent incentives in spurring both tire-recycling and mosquito abatement efforts.
What interest is there in organizing and coordinating tire management programs?

First of all no one has to reply to anything.
Second of all stop crossposting this into rec.gardens, no one seems to want to discuss this with you.

THE FACTS OF LIFE AS IT PERTAINS TO USENET
1. Usenet was created to bridge distance and promote discussion. As such, it can be thought of as a network of bridges.
2. There are people who live underneath these bridges - they are called trolls.
3. Trolls believe that their message or presence is important enough that you MUST know about it. Hence, they crosspost to any group they have the slightest interest in.
4. Acknowledging a troll in any form is only rewarding his behavior. Tell him to stop doing something, and he will only do it twice as much.
5. Do not feed the trolls. If you don't want to talk about a subject, ignore it. As the saying goes, all things will pass.
6. If you have a killfile and choose not to use it, then you have nobody to blame but yourself.
7. If you tell someone to "respond accordingly", fully expect at least one person out there to define "accordingly" as posting detailed descriptions of what you can do with your garden vegetables, and which orifices you can use in the process.
You now know the facts of life. Go forth my child, and use Usenet "accordingly".

I was addressing my response to a few of the first replys to the orignial post; that deviated away from the focus of the original post (most of us in these newsgroups don't want thoughtless, off-topic posts). I thank the people who posted a couple of thoughtful responses to the orignial post.
Sorry that my previous response to "respond accordingly" was misconstrued! "And yes, I apologize to the people in the rec.gardens group for putting them though all of this crap!"
Like the adage goes "If one doesn't have anything important to say, then don't say anything at all!" "Talk about the facts of life as it pertains to newsgroups."

So why not set your followups to the group that originated this crap, or just you own group, or, like the man said, shut up.
