Lehigh Technologies has announced that the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) has laid rubber-modified asphalt (RMA), made from recycled tires, in Bibb County, Ga. The state is expanding on previous studies with RMA, testing the material’s performance versus traditional asphalt materials in “real-world conditions.” Currently, according to Lehigh Technologies, Georgia permits rubber modification in certain asphalt pavement type and jobs. The test is being conducted in collaboration with several Georgia companies: Reeves Construction, a leader in the heavy highway and asphalt paving industry in Georgia; Liberty Tire Recycling, which does the primary processing of the end-of-life tires from Georgia; and Lehigh Technologies, which processes the product from Liberty into sustainable micronized rubber powder (MRP) that is added to the asphalt formulation to be applied by Reeves

Will Sagar, policy director of the Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC), says he likes to keep his message to elected officials simple: Recycling creates jobs.

The SERDC’s website helps corporations involved in recycling, recycling program coordinators and solid waste officials in 11 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia) to present the “recycling = jobs” case to legislators and others involved in making policy decisions
