RE: [GreenYes] Tire Recycling
>From what the research I've done, I've found that the tires burn hotter than
conventional heating methods, and therefore cleaner.  The emissions here are
actually cleaner than they would be if they were just using coal.

Hi all!

I would appreciate information on suppliers of technology that allows one to
re-use
tires (we spell them tyres here!), as we think that they may be useful for
buidling
roads and playgrounds....

so please, all,
do not support this method of disposal - the impacts are bio-accumulative,
and
extremely harmful....
