Difficulties of landfilling tires

Tires are difficult to landfill by their design. They are 75% voided space that can trap methane gases and cause them to be buoyant or bubble to the surface. This can also cause damage to landfill liners that have been installed to keep our ground water safe. It also releases methane into the air that we breathe. There is a cleaner, safer solution to landfilling tires.
