Tires Utilization Factory 1

Looking at junkyards full of old tires, you come to understand that car owners of Vladivostok change their tires a lot. Sometimes, they set these tires on fire which pollutes the air greatly. Two years ago they decided to solve this problem by opening a tire recycling factory where they could turn old needless tires into a new stadium track surface. So, here it is!

At the factory they accept tires of all sizes for three rubles (30 cents) for a kilogram.

They accept damaged tires too. The only condition is that they should have no paint and oil spots and burning marks.

    To solve the tyre problem in one city they need to recycle “10 THOUSAND TONS” of tires a year”. Wow I had no idea, and that is only one city.

      That’s also a lot of stadium tracks.

        the rubber can also be used at playgrounds for the ground instead of sand (the rubber is lightly heat-pressed after being poured down so it forms a solid top but is still springy). It is safer than sand in case a child falls and also the local cats won’t use it as a litter. I have also seen the rubber granules used as the underlay for the astroturf in indoor soccer pitches.

    Uumm, so who’s paying who? Do they pay you, when you give them your tires, or do you pay them, for accepting your tires? If latter, i guess burning will continue..
