RE: Rubber Build-up on Airport Runways
Provided the tires are composed of the same materials (or better) as
automotive tires, the rubber should be acceptable to any processor that
might convert auto tires to crumb rubber. Processing auto tires to crumb
rubber for re-use is a difficult process. Unless the rubber is contaminated
or otherwise unfit for use as crumb I would think any processor would
consider it a bargain.
