The management of scrap tires has become a growing problem in recent years. Scrap tires represent one of several special wastes that are difficult for municipalities to handle. Whole tires are difficult to landfill because they tend to float to the surface. Stockpiles of scrap tires are located in many communities, resulting in public health, environmental, and aesthetic problems.

Over 242 million scrap tires are generated each year in the United States. In addition, about 2 billion waste tires have accumulated in stockpiles or uncontrolled tire dumps across the country. Millions more are scattered in ravines, deserts, woods, and empty lots. Scrap tires provide breeding sites for mosquitoes which can spread diseases, and large tire piles often constitute fire hazards.

Scrap tires present unusual disposal problems. The very characteristics that make them desirable as tires, long life and durability, make disposal almost impossible. The fact that tires are thermal-set polymers means that they cannot be melted and separated into their chemical components. Tires are also virtually immune to biological degradation. Landfilling scrap tires is unacceptable for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that they tend to rise to, and break through, the surface liner.
