RECYCLED TIRE RUBBER PRODUCTS FOR BUILDERS & MANAGERS
Builders and building managers are discovering the many advantages of using products made from recycled tire rubber. Enhanced durability & resilience. Easy maintenance & installation. Improved safety & comfort. Increased impact absorption. And that’s just the beginning.
Environment & Community
Recycling conserves landfill space and saves natural resources. It can also bring new jobs and revenue to communities. Recycled tire rubber improves safety on recreational surfaces. It’s used in landscaping pavers & tiles, and turned into rubber mulch, artificial turf and playground surfacing. It can also provide a flat surface that increases accessibility for people with mobility challenges and parents with strollers.
Attractive & Innovative
A recycling program can be a major selling point for a building or facility. Cities are promoting recycling to increase their multi-housing diversion rates, so be proactive and you’ll be ready for the future!
The equation is simple; the more waste, the higher the bill. Bringing recycling to your building may reduce your garbage collection service and take advantage of lower (sometimes free) recycling service rates.
