Takeaways:

  • A new 2.5-mile-long walking and biking trail in Tenneessee’s T.O Fuller State Park is made of recycled rubber tires.
  • These tires were illegally dumped around the state park and picked up by volunteers in 2019.
  • “This is a quintessential example of recycling in full circle, collecting dumped material then converting it into positive use,” said David Salyers, commissioner of Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).
