Tire-shredder pilot project to take off

Guam - With a pilot program underway for a tire shredder locally, it looks like the Guam Environmental Protection Agency is rescinding a public service announcement issued last month.

According to Guam EPA administrator Eric Palacios, the November PSA noted that those holding waste tires have 90 days to come into compliance with certain permit conditions or face penalties.

Palacios says residents can disregard warning as a tire shredder is currently en route to Guam. "The island will be seeing its first tire shredder I'm hoping I the next 30 days but that still doesn't mean that other interested vendors can't go out and buy other shredders - they're welcome to do so. They would be able to avail the same benefits that we're offering through this pilot project," he said.

Guahan Waste Control (doing business as Mr. Rubbishman) have invested in the tire shredder.

As we've been reporting, tires have been piling high island wide as the demand for waste tire shifted to shredded tires. Shredded tires are used in rubberized asphalt and fuel for power generation.
