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:
