An estimated 1.5 million waste tires have
been illegally dumped or stockpiled in California. Proper disposal reduces
the threat to public health, safety, and the environment. Recycled tires can
be incorporated in rubberized asphalt concrete. This road material can
reduce costs, noise, and environmental impact.
