Frequent Questions

Where can I find information about tire recycling for my home or business?

Historically most scrap tires took up space in landfills or provided breeding grounds for mosquitoes and rodents when stockpiled or illegally dumped. Fortunately, as of 2003 markets existed for 80.4% of these scrap tires-up from 17% in 1990. These markets-both recycling and beneficial use-continue to grow. The remaining scrap tires are still stockpiled or landfilled, however. For more information on scrap tire recycling, including benefits, uses, and local laws and regulations, please visit:
