Scrap Tire Management in the Southeast

National Information
Every year, the Region 4 states face the task of managing millions of scrap tires generated by the growing population of the southeast. Fortunately, markets exist for the majority of these scrap tires. These markets include ground rubber, rubberized asphalt, civil engineering applications, and tire-derived fuel. Through these innovative uses of scrap tires, markets for scrap tire material continue to grow throughout Region 4.  Region 4 and the southeastern states participate in a national work group to increase communications between state regulators, market development officials and industry.  The goal of the work group is to support existing markets while continuing to seek out innovative new market ideas.
