Moving too fast

The city of Tripoli moves too fast - and consequently has a mountain of a problem - that of used tyres! Like most urban cities anywhere in the world, the volume of tyres in the city has been increasing at a rapid rate. Used tyres pose a potential problem in their disposal - polluting the environment, degrading air, water and land resources.
The potential of reusing or recycling used tyres are only now being realized - as a road surface material, products such as roofing tiles, flooring tiles, carpet liners, athletic tracks, artificial grass etc.
Understanding the policy options for tyre disposal is a critical starting point that is facilitated by good qualitative and quantitative data. It will also help to understand the potential and develop a unique and customized tyre reuse/recycling system. GDRC has been helping set up such a system for Tripoli.
