Tires get new life after the road
There are approximately 290 million scrap tires generated each year in the U.S., with about 27 million of those disposed of in landfills, notes the Environmental Protection Agency. Fortunately, the majority of scrap tires are recycled or used in beneficial ways, such as for fuel, building projects and rubber-modified asphalt.
