Earn LEED Credits for using Rubber Mulch in your landscaping or playground

Sustainability - LEED Credits for using Rubber Mulch in LandscapingLiberty Tire Recycling and LTR Products are committed to creating environmentally-friendly and sustainable products that serve both our customers and our planet. In addition to making Landscaping, Playgrounds, Parks, Horse Arenas and other Equestrian Areas, Training Courses and Ballistic Ranges safer, more efficient and more attractive, the rubber we recycle removes millions of tires from the waste stream and converts them into smart, sustainable products that improve people’s lives. Let us help with your Corporate Sustainability and Green Building (LEED) efforts.

Reduce
Rubber Mulch lasts up to 12 times longer than traditional wood mulch and similar materials, so you don’t have to replace it yearly. When you factor in the manufacturing, delivery and placement of mulch on an annual basis, Rubber Mulch’s carbon footprint is over 90% lower over the life of the product. Using less saves money, too, up to 65% over the first 5 years.

Re-Use
The tires we remove from the waste stream would end up in landfills throughout North America, instead of being re-used to make landscaping, playgrounds and other areas safer, more efficient and more attractive. Extending the life of the rubber in spent tires maximizes the return on our society’s investment in the cost of the original rubber, the tire manufacturing processes and the shipping, delivery and disposal of the products.

Recycle
Liberty Tire Recycling transforms 110,000,000 tires annually into raw materials for smart, sustainable products that improve people’s lives. Liberty is the premier provider of tire recycling services in the United States – handling over 33% of the nation’s discarded tires.
