The Associated Press COLUMBIA The Droblem of how to dispose of used tires is almost as old as America's love affair with the automobile. Since the first automobiles were equipped with rubber wheels at the turn of the century, car owners have disposed of their worn-out tires by throwing them into ditches, rolling them into rivers or lakes or hauling them to city dumps. About the time new technology and environmental concerns forced 'the conversion of city dumps to scientifically designed landfills, most states adopted laws regulating tire disposal. Since 1991, Missouri retail-'ers have been required by law to accept old tires on a one-to-one basis when customers buy new ones, with most tacking a disposal fee onto the imceofthe new tire. '-'In Missouri, whole tires are -'banned from landfills. Curiously, tires quartered or sliced in half may be placed in landfills. f But for generations the mounds of ilack rubber, slow to deteriorate, 'grew larger and larger. Today, there are an estimated 800 million waste Death Notices Wesley Reed Anderson Barbara Jean Cambria Modena Carbaugh Joe Lee Conrad Paul Cook ; ' Phyllis Farley Mildred Delphine Bellis Hannah i. .

Many of them are stockpiled in illegal dump sites. Missouri is estimated to have 5.5 million waste tires in dumps, said Dan Fester, head of the waste-tire unit of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. "We are not a problem compared to other states," Fester said. '"Most of these things are small, less than 10,000 tires, which is not that big an area. They are mostly in rural areas back in the woods where nobody sees them." And ever' year, the numbers grow by an estimated one tire per person. The good news is that in Missouri, and throughout the nation, fewer tires are winding up in dumps and landfills, a success story driven largely by the growth of the scrap-tire industry.
