Wren Sleyster of Avenue Auto Wrecking in Kansas City has a unique take on recycling.

Sleyster uses recycled tires and concrete to create massive building blocks. He has used the blocks to build a loading dock as well as a security wall at the auto recycling facility.

Sleyster, faced with an overabundance of tires, was tired of paying the fees to have them hauled away. After a great deal of research, Sleyster secured a grant and began work.

Learn more about the benefits as well as the hurdles Sleyster had to overcome in the complete article from to Autumn 2013 issue of Locator UpFront.
