The Road to Rubber Recycling: Product Stewardship for Tires
Webinar - February 19, 2014 | 1:30 - 3:00 PM


According to recent estimates, approximately 150 million scrap tires sit in stockpiles across the country, representing a significant source of environmental pollution and ecological disruption. Tire stockpiles attract disease-carryin
g rodents and mosquitoes, can contaminate the soil, and present toxic fire hazards. The good news is that there are a growing number of markets for scrap tires, which promise to create thousands of new jobs, spur economic growth, and reduce pollution. What are these markets and what types of jobs do they generate? What are potential future markets? What role do tire manufacturers play in preventing the environmental impacts of tire waste? How can scrap tire stockpiling be prevented, and where can costs related to tire waste management be reduced? What is the potential for EPR for tires? This webinar features some of North America’s foremost experts on rubber tire production, recycling, and product stewardship, and will explore these questions and more. (90 min.) Speakers include: • Michael Blumenthal, Rubber Manufacturers Association • Kimberly Del Castillo, Recycling Coordinator, Del Rio, TX • Jennifer Holliday, Chittenden Solid Waste District • Andrew Horsman, Exec. Director, Tire Stewardship Ontario
