I can't find the reference, but in the last couple of weeks I came
across a story about a guy who took old tires, and built a fence in a
rural area with them, and ran into all kinds of legal troubles because
of the laws regarding the "disposal" of tires. I wonder how often
recycling efforts die not because the technology isn't there, but
because the laws are inflexible, and the folks who could change them
don't care to change them?

This page has a good deal of general information on tire recycling.
It seems that while they *can* be reused/recycled, many of the
processes are just too expensive to be practical. Although, like
certain 'oil recovery' operations, when the price of an end-product
rises, some methods *do* become worth investing in.
