In the first four years of its tire recycling program, the East Central Indiana Solid Waste District collected over 117,000 tires at its annual Tire Recycling Days.  The tires were taken to a local company where they were processed into crumb rubber playground mulch.  Through a District grant program, 57 playgrounds, at schools and parks throughout the District, received the rubber mulch to help protect children as they play.  In 1999, the District received the prestigious Governor's Award for Excellence in Recycling for this program.
