RMA helps reduce tire piles along U.S. border

Washington, D.C. – The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) has joined with the Border Environmental Cooperative Commission (BECC) and other groups to assist in reducing tire piles and to develop a scrap tire recycling infrastructure along the U.S.-Mexico border.

An ad hoc committee will be formed to recommend a solution to deal with millions of scrap tires located in the six Mexican states that border the United States. The committee also will address scrap tire management economic development and ways to create scrap tire markets in Mexico.
