Tire Initiative Collaborative Effort
Border 2012 has taken a multifaceted approach through cleanup and prevention efforts to overcome the scrap tire problem. One preventative measure that Border 2012 has taken is the Tire Initiative Collaborative Effort. Through this effort, border states, municipalities and the tire industry are working together to address the scrap tire problem. At the state level, in August of 2008, the heads of all ten border state environmental agencies formally signed the Tire Initiative Letter of Understanding to support the Tire Initiative, an integrated, binational approach to scrap tire management. At the 2008 XXVI Annual Border Governors Conference, a joint declaration was signed by governors of the border states execute the Tire Initiative. At the 16th Border Legislative Conference on October 19, 2007, state legislators from the U.S. and Mexico expressed their support of the Tire Initiative. At the municipality level, San Luis, Sonora was the first border municipality to agree to take steps to implement the Tire Initiative in 2007, and more municipalities since then have also signed. The U.S. Rubber Manufacturers Association also signed a Tire Initiative Letter of Understanding in 2008.
