    Nope. Most things are unable to decompose in landfills, rubber doesn’t breakdown eitherway.

    Here are some decomposition rates for some items
    Apple Core: 1 – 6 weeks
    Paper: 2 – 4 weeks
    Cigarette Filter: 13 years
    Aluminum Can: 200 – 500 years
    Plastic: 500 years
    Rubber Tire: No Known Disintegration ( scientists suggest billions of years)
