Have you ever wondered what happens to the used tires you have removed from your car when you buy new ones? You probably only think about it for a moment when you notice a fee on your bill charging you for the disposal of the old tires. After that it’s not something you may ever think about again, ever.
But that is not the end of the road for your used tires or the hundreds of million of other used tires discarded yearly. Because they are not bio-degradable they are usually “stored” somewhere until someone comes along and re-cycles them or make some other use of them. Some are burnt as fuel but that process contributes to air pollution.
What is the solution? Do you have any ideas? What do you do with mountains of tires?
