Do we use recycled tires for Astroturf?



  1. 0 Votes

    Good question, Orionsbelt0.  Recycled tires are definitely used to help make an astroturf field.  According to, recycled tires are used in there “all rubber in-fill system.”  I presume this is the material they put underneath the astroturf to make it feel like there is soil underneath, rather than just concrete or something.  A typical field uses about 12,000 recycled passenger car tires!

    Hope this helps!

    Recycled tires can also be used to make shoes, doormats, insulation, notebooks, mousepads, etc. Here’s a link for a website that sells all kinds of things made from recycled tires.
