Cadmium and Recycled Tires (update request)

  • Subject: [cg] Cadmium and Recycled Tires (update request)
  • From: Allan Balliett igg@igg.com

Can someone bring me up to date on the situation with the appropriateness of using recycled tires as planters in community gardens and in low income food projects?

I know at some time in the 90's it seemed pretty clear that tires presented a threat to health but it appears in my recent Google search that many gardens now allow them.

Can someone help?

Thanks -Allan
