The United States uses 60% of its rubber resources to manufacture tires. Today, the amount of tires shipped into the U.S. has reached annual levels exceeding 300 million. Because of their complex chemical composition, tires present unique recycling challenges. While environmental advocates have made significant strides in figuring out how best to deal with the almost 5 million tons of tire waste created every year, they still have a long way to go.
But you can help! You can reduce your waste by, instead of simply throwing them away, finding new uses for tires that are entering retirement. (get it?)
