Tires

Tires are one of the consistant items we find durring our clean-ups. Tires are disposed of inappropriatly because of the cost of recycling tires. When we do our clean-ups, someone still pays for the disposal of these tires, thus increasing costs of our clean-ups, and your taxes. Here is some information and idea's for the reuse of tires if you do not wish to pay the cost of recycling tires.

Reusing

Reusing products is one thing that people can do to help the rivers and everywhere else. There is all sorts of ways to reuse items. One way is having a garage sale instead of tossing stuff away. Another way is if the facility is availiable, a reuse center. If something is old doesn't nesscessarily mean it's useless.
