Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix and CalRecycle
Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix, ARHM-GG-C, is asphalt pavement containing crumb rubber. Crumb rubber serves as a modifier to the asphalt, and provides the asphalt with properties which help it to resist cracking and rutting. The crumb rubber is produced from processing scrap tires. In an effort to remove the amount of waste tires ending up in landfills, CalRecycle offers incentives to cities that use ARHM comprised of crumb rubber from California Waste Tires. With the help of Cal Recycle, the City of West Covina was able to divert 13,614 California Waste Tires from California landfills in years 2016-2017.
