RUBBERSIDEWALKS

Across the country, cities constantly struggle with public safety and ongoing financial burdens caused by tree roots lifting cracked concrete sidewalks. Rubbersidewalks offer a convenient solution to this problem. The modular sidewalk system allows air and water to reach the soil below, and can be pulled apart for easy tree and root maintenance, decreasing the need for urban tree removal.

Rubbersidewalks are made of 100% recycled tire rubber. The waste rubber from one passenger tire creates one-square-foot of Rubbersidewalk, helping to recycle the more than 34 million passenger tires disposed in California alone. At the end of their lifecycle (at least 14 years), Rubbersidewalk pavers can be recollected and recycled back into the manufacturing process.




Rubbersidewalks were invented by Richard Valeriano, public works inspector for the City of Santa Monica, where some of the first installations were tested for more than three years before opening up the product to other municipalities. Founded in 2001 and Headquarted in Gardena, California, Rubersidewalks, Inc., keeps track of all of their installation sites for maintenance review, relieving the city of the burden. Rubbersidewalks modular paving is now installed in more than 20 states throughout the United States.

    Please send me a list of rubber sidewalk paver suppliers in the Portland, OR area. I would like to make my patio setting area of this rather than concrete.
    Thanks,
