According to the US Federal Highway Administration, approximately 280 million tires are discarded each year by American motorists, approximately one tire for every person in the United States. Around 30 million of these tires are retreaded or reused, leaving roughly 250 million scrap tires to be managed annually. About 85 percent of these scrap tires are automobile tires, the remainder being truck tires. Besides the need to manage these scrap tires, it has been estimated that there may be as many as 2 to 3 billion tires that have accumulated over the years and are contained in numerous stockpiles

Improper tire disposal creates various health and safety concerns. Illegal tire dumping can pollute streams, woods, roadsides, and other public land and fires can start if tire pile up that can potentially release chemicals into the air and ground. In addition, tire dumps also become breeding grounds for vermin and mosquitoes.
