Why Recycle Tires?
Risk of tire fires. Tires don't catch fire easily, but when they do catch fire, they burn very hot and are very difficult to extinguish.
Disease-carrying Mosquitoes. Water collects in tires providing a perfect breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitoes
Steps You Can Take to Reduce Tire Waste
1. Purchase higher mileage tires. Using tires with a tread life of 80,000 instead of 40,000 miles reduces scrap tire generation by 50 percent.
2. Purchase retreaded or re-manufactured tires. Safety studies show that retreaded and re-manufactured tires are as safe as newly manufactured tires.
