Environmental friendly Recycling
1 Gather the rubber products you have for recycling. Most people will have used rubber tires available
for recycle. Most recycling centers take intact and shredded rubber tires.
2-Find the nearest recycling center. Most townships don't pick up rubber left at the curb for recycling.
You'll have to transport the rubber yourself to the nearest recycling center.
3-Recycle your rubber by trading it through a business-to-business exchange. Organizations will
advertise their need for rubber products online. You contact them and they'll arrange pick up and
transport. Find ads on the site Recycle.net (see Resources below)
4 -Contact a business that manufactures rubber mulch. Rubber mulch is put down to make
playgrounds and other areas softer and safer for kids. Contact these businesses to find out where
you can recycle your rubber products. Get in touch with Rubber Recycle for more information on
how you can help (see Resources below).
