Thousands Of Tires From Potter County Being Recycled

From Potter County Today

tiresrecyclingPotter County residents who want to dispose of used tires in an environmentally responsible way can do so at the county seat. E&G Auto Plus of Coudersport operates a recycling project on Rt. 6, west of the borough, accepting tires for a nominal charge for Mahantango Enterprises. That downstate company chips the tires, which are then used for mulch, playground surfaces, and fuel for industrial boilers. Shredded tires are used as foundation rubber drainage material. On-lot sewage disposal systems also use the state-approved rubber aggregate in drain fields. Potter County Solid Waste Authority recommends that individuals take advantage of the recycling option, which is less expensive than disposal. Nearly 7,000 tires were recycled there in 2010. Those planning to take tires to E&G should call ahead at 274-4277.
