Rolls of Rubber.  These rolls of rubber were involved in a truck accident on the way to a factory where they were going to be die cut into diaphragms for truck air brakes.  The customer rejected the whole load.  Really!?!  How bad can you hurt rolls of rubber?  Anyway, these brand new rolls of 1/8" x 56" x 100-200' are available for sale.  (NOTE: The blue fabric is protective layers between the black rubber.)  L: Denver  email for Pricing>>

Swimming Pool Covers.  A variety of sizes.  L: Denver  Click Here for Pool Cover sizing and pricing>>

*A,C,E (Attributes, Characteristics, Engineering)  See the 1" nylon webbing on the grid pattern.  These are woven into these pool covers to add incredible strength to the covers.  Yes, you can actually walk on them.  This 1" webbing provides a tremendous advantage when you use these as tarps, shade tarps, etc.  If you get a rip in it, it only tears to the nearest webbing.  That way you don't loose your whole tarp for one rip that eventually stretches across your whole tarp!

repurposedIDEA:  "Here is a picture of what we did with the Swimming Pool Cover we got from you.  It is great to 'repurpose' on the leaf removal trailer as a tarp.  It covers the whole trailer, and we do not have to worry about debris coming out of the sides.  Tie downs are great because you don't have to use screws or bungees." - Paul

operationDISCOVERY.  We are fielding more and more calls from companies with different kinds of foam waste.  So, we'd like to find out from you, our readers, what is going on with foam recycling.  Several Questions: 1) Do you know of any really smart, innovative applications for a certain type of recycled foam product?  2)  Are you a large generator of foam waste that you'd like to find a higher and better use for?  3)  Or, on the flip side, are you looking to find more sources for a certain type(s) of recycled foam?  Contact Us>>

foamSOURCE:  "We service a large train fleet and have an overabundance of used polyuerethane foam seat pads.  Some of the foam is reused and some is deemed not re-usable due to age, density and resilience.  We currently throw it away.  The cushions vary in size, but most are 14-18" wide, 4-6 inches deep." Lori

Is there any "repurposes" for these seat pads "as is" cutting, shredding, etc?  Email Ideas>>
