Some food for thought.

In the United States alone there are presently more than three thousand million tires in landfills, illegal dumps and stockpiles, increasing by another thousand million every four years. The largest pile of tires in the world is in Westley, California, where thirty-four million scrap tires cover near 200 acres, sometimes forming seven-storey mountains.”
