ATHLETIC SURFACES

Crumb rubber adds impact-absorbing cushioning on a variety of playing and sports surfaces, including football fields, running tracks, and playgrounds. Surfaces incorporating crumb rubber infill dry quickly, drain excess moisture, reduce dust and mud, and minimize freezing.

Crumb from used tires has been used in artificial turf fields for over a decade, and even longer in playgrounds and tracks. The EPA does not consider scrap tires as hazardous waste and approves the use of crumb from recycled tires for athletic fields.
