Shredded tire waste is currently being used as a play surface on 47 elementary playgrounds in the MPS school district. Chemicals detected in shredded tire material include carcinogens, neurotoxins, respiratory/eye/skin irritants and reproductive and developmental toxins.
The Linden Hills Neighborhood Council Environment & Sustainability Committee and Play It Safe Minneapolis are advocating for the removal and replacement of shredded waste tires and crumb rubber on playgrounds. You can help.
