Treasure in waste tires


The Sentinel Online : Business:

"waste tires have undergone transformation from trash to treasure in a burgeoning industry that collects, processes and sells tire rubber.

Last year, 300 million tires were discarded — about one per American — and 261 million of those were recycled. Most of the 39 million or so tires not recycled were processed for landfill disposal."
