    Recycling tubes and tires in Boise area?
    Title pretty much sums it up. Need to find a place that can recycle rubber in the Boise area.

    Thanks

    Ooh, sorry. Unusable rubber- tubes with too many patches, tires that are worn out, etc.

    For tubes, I cut them up and use them as rubber bands/tie downs/bungees. Yes, very ghetto...
    For tires, I use them as sidewall patches (but one old road tire should last you a lifetime for this application). 3X1" patch plus some gorilla gllue does wonders...

    But also very clever and economical! Sad I never thought of this. At least I now have a use for my next wornout tube. Thanks.
