Liberty Tire Recycling will be highlighting its "eco-friendly, sustainable civil engineering solutions” at a Dec. 14 all-day event called "Recycle Salt Lake City."

Held at both the Little America Hotel on South Main Street and at Liberty’s Beck Street facility, the dual-session program will gather transportation and environmental professionals, civic leaders and policy-makers together so that they can learn more about new applications for recycled rubber, including rubber modified asphalt.

“With a renewed focus on community improvement through sustainable sourcing, rubber modified asphalt and other innovative applications for recycled rubber create a win-win situation for cities across the nation,” says Jeffrey Kendall, Liberty’s CEO.

“Reusing scrap tire rubber for infrastructure like highways can help ensure that dangerous tire piles are a thing of the past, and also help build a sustainable future in Salt Lake City and across the nation,” he points out.

A morning session will focus on scrap tire collection processes with a presentation called “Ecosystem: Salt Lake City” and a tour of the company’s recycling facility.

In the afternoon, a technical session at the hotel will focus on rubber modified asphalt for civil engineering applications. Along with Liberty executives, an expert from the Rubber Pavements Association will join the dialogue with a presentation focused on experiences with rubber modified asphalt.

“We encourage engineers and road maintenance supervisors to take rubberized asphalt specifications from this event and put them into practice in Salt Lake City to help save money without sacrificing performance,” Kendall says.

Several elected officials are expected to attend the invitation-only conference.
