CLEARWATER, Fla.—Bridgestone Americas and Liberty Tire Recycling L.L.C. will highlight the benefits of rubberized asphalt on April 30 with “Recycle Florida: 2014.”
The event, to be held at the facility of Tires Plus, a Bridgestone subsidiary in Clearwater, will gather transportation and environmental professionals, civic leaders and policymakers to learn about scrap tire management in Florida and rubberized asphalt materials and applications. Speakers include experts from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Florida Department of Transportation, as well as Bridgestone Americas, South Florida Materials, Asphalt+ and Liberty Tire Recycling.
“Rubberized asphalt presents Florida and states across the country with an opportunity to build longer-lasting, less expensive roadways by utilizing recycled tire rubber that can otherwise litter the landscape in the form of illegal tire dumps,” said Jeffrey Kendall, Liberty Tire CEO. “After decades of research and development, rubberized asphalt has come a long way to improve highway infrastructure through sustainable sourcing.”
