Hundreds of waste tires have been illegally dumped or stockpiled in all three communities. Proper disposal reduces the threat to public health, safety and the environment.
Recycled tires are used in many ways, including, rubberized asphalt for highways and roads, playground cover, flooring/matting, landfill construction and soil additives. Hundreds of products now contain recyclable tire rubber.
