ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the ways to dispose and recycle scrap tires and presents various statistics related to scrap tire management. Scrap tires present unique recycling and disposal challenges because they are heavy, bulky and made from a variety of materials. The biggest market for scrap tires is tire-derived fuel, which is a low-sulfur, high-heating value fuel. Scrap tires can be recycled as whole or split tires. Whole tires are used for artificial reefs and playground equipment, while split tires are for floor mats and belts. New tires can have a small amount of recycled rubber.
