VADO, N.M. (AP) - A poor New Mexico town along the U.S.-Mexico border is getting three roads paved with recycled material.
The nonprofit group Communities in Action and Faith received this week more than 60 tons of recycled roofing shingle material to begin paving three roads.
Residents have long complained that the unpaved roads were dangerous and hard for emergency vehicles to pass.
The group says a recycling company out of El Paso, Texas, partnered with the regional EPA office to donate the materials to Vado.
The roads are privately owned and Dona Ana County is not responsible for maintaining them.
