of Exposure to Recycled Tire Rubber found at
Playgrounds and Synthetic Turf Fields
“No adverse human health or ecological health effects are likely to result from these beneficial reuses of tire materials.”(pg. iii)
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the health and ecological risks associated with the use of recycled tire rubber in consumer applications, particularly playgrounds and athletic fields. In doing so, a thorough review of available literature was conducted including studies from both advocates and opponents to the use of recycled tire materials.
