Retreads contribute to Post Office honor
The use of retreaded tires is an important part of the U.S. Postal Service's national Green Purchasing Program.
The White House recently honored the U.S. Postal Service for environmental stewardship with its 2009 Closing the Circle Award.
“Over the years, we have watched the Postal Service increase their use of retreads on their mail delivery vehicles and large trucks, and we are always pleased to know that when our mail is delivered it is coming on a vehicle using retreads,” says Harvey Brodsky, managing director of the Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB).
“They set a great example for other fleets in both the public and private sectors who are interested in helping the environment and saving money."
