Old tires are the most problematic source of waste due to the sheer volume produced, their durability, and the fact they contain a number of components that are ecologically problematic. These tires do not decompose by themselves, take up space in landfills or provide breeding grounds for mosquitoes and rodents when stockpiled or illegally dumped By giving these old tires a new lease of life, recycling them into new products, less tires will actually end up in a landfill. Most of these tires get recycled for fuel. The remaining tires, well most of them, are then chopped up into rubber strips or into beads called "crumb rubber." The beads are recycled into street repair materials. The rubber strips go on to become new products such as doormats! The benefits of using recycled rubber doormats are many-fold. One, it cleans the dirt, all kinds of unthinkable muck and slush (such a big problem in winter) from beneath footwear; Two, since all the dirt gets cleaned off, it doesn’t track inside your home thus protecting the floors and rugs from damage and plus – really it saves you all that back breaking cleaning!
