Bridjit has used 38,000 recycled tires in our curb ramps!

Dead tyres

Old, used tires are a large problem in our landfills because of their large quantities and they take up so much valuable space.  There are approximately 270 million old tires added to the US land fill each year.  Tire dumps are also know to harbor vermin and mosquitoes, creating unsafe health conditions.  Due to heavy metals and a series of other pollutants, dumped tires can leech into groundwater, again affecting the help of our communities.

At Bridjit, we are very happy to say we have now recycled 38,000 tires in the production of our curb ramps.  We decided to use old rubber tires over other available recycled products because of their never-ending supply, their durability, and the great problems they create in our communities – we wanted to get them out of the landfills and put them to good use!

We use Crumb rubber, old tires processed to remove steel and fluff, to create a granular material that provides flexibility for manufacturing and the durability we all know from using tires on our cars.  It’s really a great product.  The crump rubber provides the ability to adjust the density for durability and weight needed to keep our ramps in place without having to bolt them down.

We’re excited to be able to create a great product while still being great stewards for our environment.

Keeping the Green Going

 

Haven’t you sometimes wondered what happens to all those old tires you throw out? Unfortunately, the answer is often, “not much.” As many as 275 million of them wind up stockpiled at any given time. But if those of us at Bridjit had our way, they would all be reborn as Bridjit ramps!

At Bridjit, it’s always Earth Day. We don’t feel we should be environmentally conscious one day in April; rather, it’s a year-round commitment. Every Bridjit rubber curb ramp set represents 12 passenger tires that have been productively recycled. Says Bridjit Ramp’s founder/president John Curry, “Bridjit is proud to help reduce this environmental problem and lead our country’s sustainability efforts.”

Here’s how it’s done:

  • A tire recycling operation reduces scrap tires to small chips, removing all the fiber and wire.
  • The chips are ground into a fine powder known as crumb rubber.
  • This rubber is used to make products from fitness mats, to playground flooring, to Bridjit ramps.

Four tires per person end up in landfills every year

Waste tires have been a problem for our country for decades. Tire piles have accumulated legally and illegally, causing health and safety problems due to rats, mosquitoes and tire fires. With each American contributing approximately four tires per year to our landfills (270,000,000 tires) the problem continues to grow.

By recycling those tires into quality curb ramps, however, Bridjit is helping to solve the problem. Bridjit converts 12 used tires into each environmentally-friendly, three-piece curb bridge set. Learn more about Bridjit at www.Bridjit.com.

Five Ways to Keep Tires out of Landfills

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 290 million scrap tires are generated in the United States every year. While recycling tires has increased dramatically in recent years, the fact remains that there are too many used tires clogging our landfills. On the surface, this may not seem like a huge problem, but tire piles are more than just a nuisance – they are a health hazard. They attract pests like rodents who nest in them and mosquitoes that live in the stagnant rain water collected in the tires. In addition, if the tires catch fire, they produce black smoke and air pollutants, posing significant risks to humans, animals and the environment.

Fortunately, we can help to solve the problem by finding creative ways to recycle and reuse tire rubber. Here are five ways to keep tires out of landfills:

1. Curb ramps – Made from crumb rubber, auto curb ramps are used to bridge the gap from street to driveway in neighborhoods where rollover curbs make the transition difficult. In a three-piece curb bridge set, 12 tires are recycled.

2. Highway resurfacing – In several states crumb rubber is being mixed with recycled and virgin asphalt materials attaining a high reduction of internal vehicle noise as well as a reduction of highway noise in highly populated areas. This reduces the amount of limited resource virgin asphalt being used.

3. Highway sound barriers – Many states are now using sound barriers to protect neighborhoods from the loud noises produced by nearby highways. In northern Virginia, a sound barrier was developed using a mixture of concrete aggregate, cement, water and small pieces of shredded tires. Sounds are absorbed by this “Whisper Wall.”

4. Rubber surfacing – Rubber tires are being used as playground and running track surfacing. The resulting material is durable as well as soft, lessening the impact of a fall and reduces injury to runners. This same material is also being used as mulch in road medians or landscaping areas.

5. Tires as fuel – Scrap tires can be used as fuel in shredded form or whole to make tire-derived fuel (TDF). TDF produces the same amount of energy as oil and 25% more energy than coal, and is used as a supplemental fuel source to wood and coal. In 2003, 130 million scrap tires were used for fuel.

These solutions are typically utilized by manufacturers, construction companies and government entities in their zeal to cut costs and be environmentally-friendly. Consumers can help too by using and properly maintaining durable tires, purchasing used tires and retreads, and buying products made from recycled tires like tire swings, floor mats and curb ramps.

If you’d like an environmentally-friendly solution to annoying rollover curbs, visit www.Bridjit.com. We’ll show you how to reduce the jar to your car while using a product made from crumb rubber. Made in the USA, our auto curb ramps affordable, easy to install and good for the environment.

Bridjit Curb Ramps are environmentally friendly

In 2005, approximately 299 million tires were produced in the United States. During that same year, approximately 255 scrap tires were converted to or processed into another use. Among those end uses are tire derived fuel which provides a cleaner alternative to coal as fuel, civil engineering projects like road and landfill construction, and ground rubber products such as playground surfaces, running tracks and Bridjit Curb Ramps to help your vehicle make an easy transition over troublesome rollover curbs.

By reusing old tires, we can protect our environment from excessive waste. With the use of our curb ramps, you can eliminate the “jar to your car” and maintain your gas mileage with an environmentally-friendly product made in the U.S.A. Now that’s a win-win!

Water flow with Bridjit Curb Ramps

We are often asked how water flows in the curb gutters once the Bridjit Curb Ramps are installed. Here are two FAQs from our website which explain how they work together.

Q – How does BRIDJIT allow for flow of water?
A – BRIDJIT has a full length 2 ½ inch waterway built into the underneath of the product, as well as angled ends which promote excessive water to flow out and around the device, cleaning out debris.

Q – How does Bridjit work if I have a storm sewer inlet/grate located within my driveway?
A – Depending on the exact right-to-left location of the grate and depth of your driveway, Bridjit can still be utilized. You should never place the Bridjit ramp over the top of the grate. Please contact us at info@bridjit.com for possible solutions and provide a picture of your driveway if possible.
