RUBBER ON RUBBER

Here's an interesting article about Rubberized Asphalt Concrete in Cali from the LA Times. I'm a huge fan of diverting recyclable materials from the waste stream. But im wondering...

They also can pose a high fire risk, and these fires are not only hard to put out but they also create heavy smoke and toxic runoff.

Does baking in the hot sun all day + friction from cars going 60+ cause the same sort of heat that could cause a similar sort of toxic runoff? What about when you add rain to the mix? We DONT need anymore toxic runoff in our rivers.

Upcycle, please.
