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.

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 remanufactured tires. Safety studies show that retreaded and remanufactured tires are as safe as newly manufactured tires.
