Lessees of state trust land in Mora County are facing hundreds of dollars of fines for allowing a “River of Tires” — about 300,000 of them — to be dumped on there. Unless the tires are cleaned up by the end of November, the lessees (collectively known as Equity Investments Corporation) will owe the state more than $300,000.

Meanwhile, Santa Fe County is overseeing the cleanup of a piece of private property in Cañada de Los Alamos, where neighbors complained thousands of tires had been dumped. The owner of that property faces fines of up to $300 per day by the county and $5,000 a day by the state if he doesn’t clean up the mess.

    Here in Santa Fe folks would rather dump a refrigerator out on the mesa than pay $10 to drop it off at the transfer station. Some Santa Feans would rather dump tires in an arroyo rather than pay $2 to dispose of them. Do we really think that increasing trash fees for folks who toss out the most trash won't just result in more illegal arroyo dumping?

    As long as littering an illegal dumping are culturally acceptable here, increasing fees for any legal dumping will just lead to less garbage going where it should.

    But we need less tires. Transportation should be about moving people & things, not just things with wheels (tires.)
