Bike Tires and Inner tubes- May Challenge Material

The Challenge Material for the month of May is bike tires and inner tubes.  I contacted two local bike shops Dirty Finger and Discover Bikes to ask what they had as a common waste (unrecyclable) material.  They both said that used tires and inner tubes are hard to recycle in the Gorge.  There are a couple of take back programs that take these materials, like Liberty Tire Recycling, but once again they are not programs that are easily accessible in the Columbia Gorge.

What can you make with the bike tires and inner tubes this month?  Turn in your completed project to the Columbia Art Center by Thursday, May 31st to have on display at First Friday on June 1st.  Please email me if you have any questions.  rethink
