Title: [GreenYes] Re: Star Ledger Letter to Editor by Neil Seldman

I am surprised to read that people are still talking about burning or
burying tyres.

There is a company in Malaysia, Advance PyroTech Sdn Bhd, that takes
rubber tyre from Japan to recycle. The facility through its pyrolisis
techonology provides pollution-free process to recover almost 100% of
the tyres treated. This process uses heat of between 500°C and 600°C
to break shredded tyres into their original components of oil, steel,
carbon black and gas, with little or no residue.

Also, have you not heard of Rubbersidewalks? These are rubber pavers
for sidewalks that can be unlocked and removed. The idea was thought
up by Lindsay Smith to save mature trees in her neighborhood from
being cut down by the city in their bid to reduce cost of repairing
the broken concrete pavement damaged by their roots.

I have posted a number of ways tyres can be used at the following link
and if you read it, you will know that Alchemy Goods in Seattle will
send you prepaid labels for shipping your rubber tyre to their
facility for their bag production.
