Pinnacle Rubber Mulch rolls out regional Free Pickup Locations for Rubber Mulch Orders

11/29/2010

- Pinnacle Rubber Mulch adds regional centers for order pickups to save customers money on shipping and freight costs -

Houston, TX (PRWeb), November 29, 2010 -- Pinnacle Rubber Mulch, distributed by LTR Products, a subsidiary of Liberty Tire Recycling, the premier provider of tire recycling services in the United States, has announced the rollout of regional Free Pickup Locations throughout the United States and Canada, aimed at saving customers time and costs associated with freight and delivery. 

The 15 regional centers, located in Western New York, Columbus and Minerva OH, Cameron and Concord NC, Johnston, SC, Atlanta, GA, Rockledge, FL, Savage, MN, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, TX, Tulsa, OK, Salt Lake City, UT and Delta, British Columbia, expand on Pinnacle's existing relationship with UPS to deliver fast, affordable order fulfillment for its customers.  In addition to the convenience of door-to-door freight delivery in the continental US and Canada, Pinnacle customers can now save time and money by visiting the regional centers to pick up their orders directly.  5-10 additional locations will be available soon throughout North America.

"Despite our already low shipping costs we have been dedicated to developing a method that allows consumers willing to do a bit of legwork themselves to save even more when choosing Rubber Mulch," said Brad Pittam, General Manager of LTR Products.  "The regional pickup centers, in addition to reducing transport and delivery costs, also create local jobs in each community and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases and other pollutants caused by mass shipping.  Consumers can feel even better about making an environmentally conscious decision.  Pinnacle Rubber Mulch not only saves trees from the shredder, but also provides an outlet for the millions of scrap tires that Liberty Tire Recycling collects and processes annually.  As a truly innovative green product, our rubber mulch actually outperforms the less environmentally-friendly product we are seeking to replace, and now comes with an even lower carbon footprint."

Unlike wood mulch, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is resistant to wind and water erosion, bug and rodent infestation, fading caused by sunlight, and decomposition. Rubber mulch will not compress like wood mulch, providing a thick and luxurious base material for landscape beds. As playground safety surfacing, a 6-inch layer of Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will cushion a child's fall from as high as 16 feet. Available in various colors, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will not rub off on children or pets. Plus, rubber mulch is clean, minimizes airborne dust and particles, and will never splinter like wood mulch.  Because it eliminates the need to re-mulch on a yearly basis, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will save you 65% over just 5 years.

"Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is available in just about any amount - by the pound, ton, cubic foot and cubic yard - and we distribute anywhere in the U.S. from convenient coast-to-coast shipping points," Pittam said.  The Pinnacle website, www.pinnacelrubbermulch.com, provides calculators to determine how much Rubber Mulch would be needed for a project, and real-time shipping cost estimates.
